    So, this is my first grow... I germinated a seed, and transplanted it into a decent sized pot, have the light set up, everything was going great for about a day. Then the first two textured leaves it started growing wilted, and are now turning yellow. I think what happened was chemical burn, because I found out that my friend had accidentally dripped some nutrients onto the two leaves. Since that happened, the two leaves that got touched by it wilted and are yellow now... I thought that the plant was going to die, but now today I see new growth coming up from the middle of the two leaves. What I want to know is if it would be beneficial to cut off the two leaves that are yellow, so that the new ones can grow better.... Or would that hurt the plant, since it's pretty much still a seedling? I've had gardens (Not Mary Jane) before, and I know that pruning dead leaves will help keep the plant alive... Does the same apply here?

    Okay. One is almost 100% yellow, the other is about 25-30% Should I leave the one that isn't that bad, and just take the other off?

    N/m my earlier post, i was thinking your damage was more severe. I dont cut leaves off unless they are really badly damaged, if they are just yellowing and not that bad off leave them, worse comes to worse the plant will suck any remaining energy that the damaged leaf has and put it into the next set.

    Alright, cool. Thanks, guys [: I snipped one leaf b/c it was almost 100% yellow, but I left the other. And it seems like the next set of leaves has grown a bit, so I think my baby will survive afterall [:

    oops, i forgot to tell you something, If the plants done with a leaf and its ready to come off it should only require a gentle tug to do so. If it was just yellowing i would of let it go, by badly damaged I meant like almost all the leaf is like dead dead and could become a problem w/mold/fungus/etc. I'm sorry I forgot to mention it, my mistake.
