You can do either way. It won't harm the nana one way or the other. Leaving it that way looks more natural. Removing the browns will look like you are taking care of it nicely plus you are exposing the greens of the pstem that will help in photosynthesis. But not much.

Green is good, Brown is bad.

Yeah, I cut off anything that is brown and dry. I leave it till it gets dry....but once it's there, it gets removed.

Anything, I mean anything green is good and stays. Anything dry light brown and yellow can be removed, of left durng dry weather, but should be removed in wet weather. Anything mushy dark frown must go immediately.

The green leaf stems that from the pseudostem do not need to be removed.
