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?
Just whatever is in the way.
