Dead plants

Hi there! My planted tank seems to be doing pretty good but I have two small problems, two o f my plants look as if they're starting to die and I'm wondering if anyone has any advice of how to get them out? I don't think the entire plant is dead just part of it D:

I wouldn't remove the entire plant, just cut off the parts that have died. It is common for some of the plant to die off when placed in a new environment

when did you plant it? if it was still recent the plant might just be cycling its new leaves. I would trim back the dead parts but keep nursing it and see what happens.
also what kind of plant and what are the lighting/water params

What does the dying part look like? It could be anything from shock melting to a mineral deficiency, not enough or too much light, etc. Do you have a photo?
