For our wedding favors, we ordered a variety of mini succulents in 2" pots. As one would expect, some of them were slightly damaged during shipping, with a few leaves broken in the middle. For these broken succulent leaves, is it better to clip the broken leaf off at the base, or leave the broken leaf attached?
I'm mainly asking about what's best for the health of the plant. I know with other leafier plants we have (peace lily, for example), it's better to cut off dying leaves so that the plant doesn't waste nutrients on a leaf that is going to die anyway. I wasn't sure if broken succulent leaves were doomed as well, or if they would heal and survive.
If it matters, most of the damaged plants appear to be some variety of Echeveria.
