Was it necessary to bump your own thread within 2 minutes?

It is best to prune Vals at the base of their leaves and not cutting the leaf itself, as the remainder will tend to just rot away.

When I had Vals I'ld just trim the tips off to prune them. They never seemed bothered by it and the tips and the couple extra feet of Val would quickly grow back.

I've always just cut them off at the length I wanted them for years. They will grow back and you can cut them again like hair. No need to cut down the whole plant. The very edge of the cut will turn brown though.
