Yes, use the same method as in Anthurium. You may have to cut the spathe,
but the spathe does open a cup-shaped area when the female and male flowers
are 'ready'. Good luck.
Here in WPB, Florida the flowers are either pollinated by local bugs or they
produce LOTS of fruit without pollination.
PS. My comp is down, I'm doing this from a friends lap-top. Will be
back in a few days.

My Lasia spinosa is sending up three inflorescenses right now, and I would
like to try to get some seed. I have successfully pollinated many
Anthuriums species before, and wonder if it is at all similar to that. From
the other inflorescenses I have seen on my plant in the past, I can't
recall ever seeing the spathe opening wide enough for easy access to the
spadix. I seem to recall on some other aroid species the need to cut a
portion of the spathe to easily pollinate the plant. Any help would be
