: what happens to the stump of the leaf after i cut it off? i have noticed that the plant closes the cut part but i do not know if the stump will always be there or if it goes away somehow
I'm not sure what part you are referring to. If you mean the part of the leaf that is left on the stalk after you cut off a leaf, the stump will probably stay depending on how closly you cut it. If you cut close to the stalk, the remainder may dry up and be able to be gently removed with your fingers.
Hope this helped.
