    Curled leaves are common, and not usually a problem.

      This can be caused by a large difference between day and night temperatures. Mine often get it and It doesn't seem to do any harm.

      Yeah, I've had that a few times, but never seemed to be detrimental.

      I break them off at the main stem, new ones always reappear to keep the plant going
