I use this philosophy.
If they are green, they are photosynthesizing and supporting the remaining plant.
If they are yellow, they aren't doing anything of much use except maybe draining some resources from the plant in a failing attempt to recover.
Another side is, these plants have thrived for decades, centuries, maybe mellinia with no interference by man. Bugs still ate them and they still flowered.
I personally am trying to learn a more minimal approach to tending plants.
