Plants Touching Glass?

Hey Guys...

Is it a good idea to cut lives which are touching the glass? will it harm the plant?

It will rot the plant wont it?

I have a couple of bromeliads that have leaves that get too long and touch the glass, I simply trim them back with a sharp pair of scissors and disinfect between tanks so I don't have to worry about unwanted transfer. I leave the leaves on the bottom of the cage as an addition to the leaf litter.

I didn't know broms dealt with that. Do you trim the leaves back to the base, is there some kind of node, or do you just cut off whatever's in the way?
