I took my indoor plant and put it in direct sunlight for too long and now I have some dark brown leaves. Should I cut back or wait and see if these leaves survive?

Hi Tim

I would personally cut off the dead or brown leaves at a slight angel about 1 inch away from the stem of the plant.

Give it time released fertilizer pellets like Miracle-Go and keep the soil moist but not over watered, It may take a month for it to come back but it will be fine :)
