I must have underwatered my corn plant, because the base of the leaves are dry and wrinkled. I corrected the watering but it was too late. Should I cut the leaves?


I would recommend removing all of the dead leaves entirely by either splitting the leaf from tip to base and pulling it off, or if the damage is very widespread, cutting the entire foliage crown may be a better option. If cutting the foliar crown off, expect to wait a bit before a new crown emerges.
