Help! I have some browning on my monstera adansonii leaves. This is most likely because it was kept in a small pot for way too long. When I repotted, the plant was very root-bound. Since then it has grown several new leaves and looks healthy, but I don't know what to do about the old brown leaves. I trimmed the brown parts off, but the edges turned brown/yellow again. Do I need to cut the entire leaf off and if so, where do I cut? It is the first and only leaf growing from the stem.

Trim it so that it looks more attractive to your eyes. It will not effect the growth of the plant in any way.

Thank you for your response! So I can cut the entire leaf off and it will not affect the growth of that stem?
