vals- the tips that have been trimmed will likely turn brown. watch for new leaves sprouting soon if the plant is healthy. also untrimmed leaves can develop a reddish color at the tips or wherever the lighting is highest. not a concern unless the leaf is falling apart completely and the plant isnt growing. increasing leaf length is a great sign.

branches- boiling AND baking are my favorite methods. boiling even helps them sink faster and leaches out the tannins.
