So we had some Hall and as I was cleaning the hall off my plants, I accidently ripped off probably 1/3 of the leaf from the end. I'm only a second year Gardener, did I just damage the plants potential to grow? I only ask cuz it has only those two leaves.

Your plant should be fine. They are very hardy plants. Good luck with it!

Not to worry, the plant wouldn't even notice it. If you look closely at the very middle of the plant there are new leaves already about to emerge.

Those are just the seed leaves and not a true leaf. It'll be just fine.
