Yellow leaves: to remove or not?

2 months ago

A question about the yellow leaves of my ficus benjamin. Can I shake the plant so that the leaves fall or remove them manually when it is enough to touch them to make them fall? I remember (maybe I'm wrong?) reading that @tapla (mid-Michigan, USDA z5b-6a) wrote that it's best not to do this because the plant absorbs microelements from the yellow leaves until they fall.
