absolutely not. The plant transpires through its leaves. This is the way it cools itself as well as moves water up the stem. If you remove leaves you recuce the ability for the plant to preform these functions. So that is definitely a bad thing to do.
I only remove leaves if they are damn near dead and falling off.Or if there is a bug infestation on the leaf.
Do not even remove leaves that look bad, the plant is sucking all the energy out of them because it needs it, so wait until its done draining the leaf and then pull it.
