Keep an eye on it. If the white area spreads or that area starts to fall apart, you will need to remove that area with a razor to stop the spread.

So since it was withdrawn into its molt I picked it up to have a look at it. On the back it's still attached to a smaller rock which is what it came on, it has now attached to a bigger rock but the crevice in between is completely white and where it is tearing on the back side

Cabbage leather dying?

In my opinion and my own experience of having them cabbage is bullet proof and you can always cut The good pieces off and attach them to some rock and will start growing again.

Try and cut them at least a couple of inches you can either stick them on with superglue or use a elastic band They may sulk for quite awhile and will take time to grow back just try to forget about them and make sure you keep them in the light to help speed up growth.

Welp here's a picture of it in its full glory now, you can even see the polyp extension, the only give away something is wrong is the hole.

Cabbage leather dying?

So Intresting twist, came back home and the hole had already stretched to one side. And now it has put off a whole new coral( almost) it's bigger and more vibrant then ever and has like doubled in size? Also no more white spreding and the hole is starting to heal also. It had a bit of a molt going around the edges. I think what caused all of this was the fact it was over laying itself forever, so it stretched out?
