Q.Bird Of Paradise Browned And Withered Leaves:
I live in Palm Springs, CA and have quite a few new Bird of Paradise plants outside. I had to have my house fumigated in May and unfortunately they received no water for several days. The edges of the leaves turned brown and curled, but my yard guy said they should be left alone.

We usually advise to remove damaged leaves and stems. The plants look better and, if it is due to disease, removing the leaves can prevent its spread.
