Thanks, Lionel.
The older (bottom) leaves look odd because the plant was very cramped while still attached to its mother plant. Can one do anything about that? It seems to me that one will have to cut them off.

Also, Willem, remember that the growth of a plant is through a process of photosynthesis. This requires chlorophyll. The only chlorophyll a plant has is in the leaves. To me, while the leaves are still healthy, I no not take them off. They will supply the food to your plant. If you are about to show the plant, want it neat and well structured, by all means take off some leaves ( well before the time otherwise you are going to be left with a white stem, which is penalisable). The plant itself will decide when it wants to get rid of the leaf, it will brown, and fall off.

Peter, Chris
Thanks. Yes, I did not want to remove the leaves right now: they are part of the biological factory. But they do look out of shape! I was thinking of "ironing" them a bit.
