The Q&A Archives: Ti plants frost damage

Question: The leaves on my Ti plants are brown from the frost we had last winter. Should I pull off the burn leaves or cut the stem below the leaves or just leave the plant alone? Thank you.

Answer: If you cut the stem below the damage, it will develop one or two new stems. If you just cut the damaged leaves off the stem will be bare in those areas but the top will continue to grow. I think I would cut the stem below the damage and allow two healthy new stems to grow.
