    Hi everyone. I posted a few weeks ago about my Phal Leaves to find out happened and it turns out the leaves got fairly sunburned.

    I wanted to post again here to see how is progressing. I've noticed the area around the burn has started to turn yellow and a bit darker in places, and wasn't sure if this is normal or if I should consider trimming back the affected leaves?

    I would let the plant deal with this trauma. Trimming the leaves at this juncture will add more stress to the plant. There are still some healthy parts of the leaves that the plant can use.
