Pretty confused at this one. Maybe Deluxstogie can chime in?

I harvested 2 weeks ago, and...for some reason, this one leaf from my Habano 200 priming won't turn yellow.

It's got a good texture to it, slightly leathery, dry surface, not wet as if it was on the stalk still, but it just won't turn. I've gone to the point of pulling it off the wire and isolating it to prevent molding just in case. It's small, from the lower section of the top 1/3 of the plant if that makes any difference.

It's hard to tell from the photo, but it looks like a sucker leaf that's still alive. Give it time to die a peaceful death.

Hmm, peaceful death - Maybe I should change my title to "Tobacco Doctor Kevorkian"

Yeah since all the rest is so much further ahead I'd just snap it off. Does look like a sucker too from here.
