I have a plant with holes in them due to snails. I've removed the snails and am left with many stem plants with leafs with holes in them, of half a leaf, or no leaf at all.

Do holes heal themselves?
Should I just rip/cut off the bad leafs, and replant?

Holes will not heal themselves. if you need to i would cut the top part of the plant off so you have a 4 inch cutting. replant this part of the plant.

Also just be aware the snails don’t directly cause the holes... snails graze on algae and dead plant matter... if there is an area that is hurting, the snail will clean it, but not eat healthy tissue. You may need to check into adding ferts.
