Eh, no real harm done in chopping them off. Just a little less nutrients for the plant. If it had roots when you potted it, it should be fine. Just be sure you're keeping the soil moist but not waterlogged for the first week or so and then start letting it dry out. It's very easy to end up with root rot when trying to compensate for the transition period, so just be mindful of how much water you're giving it. (:
Mine did this when it needed to be repotted! Go ahead and cut off the yellow leaves because they will not grow back green! Also check for spider mites and other pests! οΏΌοΏΌ when you repot it go up 2 inches bigger than what you have! οΏΌ
Spray the soil with Neem oil! Check the leaves where they meet the stems for webbing for signs of spider mites! οΏΌ
Sometimes they just drain and drop old leaves... It's likely nothing to worry about, but I'd check if it's root bound, just in case, and maybe consider fertilizing more depending how often you do it already... (: Also, there's really no need to cut them off. The plant will drain them of nutrients, they'll turn crispy and brown, and come off all on their own. (:
@WickedValkyrie Damn it I already cut them. I recently propagated it in water and potted it. I also moved it to an east facing window. Hopefully it will take and grow.
Good luck! 😁
@JungleLady505 I think it will be just fine! They will drop off but I was cutting off just in case they might have had spider mites cause that! But a lot of times they will turn yellow when they get root bound!οΏΌοΏΌοΏΌ
@JungleLady505 wishing you luck with this baby.
