If its 50% or more dead just remove the whole leaf. Its doing more damage then god at that point

...are you saying that if you remove 50% of a leaf it won't photosynthesize? ...if so, that would be a faulse statement. If that was the case, I would have 0% rate when I clone because I remove over 50% of leaf material on near every cutting....but, I have more like a 99% rate because the partial leaves do photosynthesize....the more you know ;):wave:
