Prune dead leaves by pulling them off gently when they become loose, or just wait for them to fall off. C. ovata tends to drop leaves easily as they die off, so be sure to collect dead leaves from that have dropped onto the soil, as they can become a home for insects that may attack the plant, such as mealybugs. Re-pot in spring, if the plant has become root-bound.
