Sunburn -- Questions

Hey everyone...I have a Phal (my first and oldest baby) that has been in my living room window forever and has loved the indirect sunlight there....Last week we had a brutally hot several days (record scorching heat in Upstate NY) and my lovely Phal (who happens to be in bloom) got a bad case of sunburn on one of its leaves....The weather has returned to normal and she seems to be doing fine now but I am unsure about what to do with the sunburn....Do I remove the leaf???....Am I supposed to treat the sunburn with anything????....

Thanks for always being there when I need help!!!!!

You needn't do anything. The leaf will eventually drop off by itself but in the meanwhile it still serves a function.

These things do happen. As long as the leaf seems stable, I agree that there is no need to remove it.
