Dear Tsuh Yang,
I`d say yes, BUT---I`d cut off only about 1/2 or 3/4 off each of the topmost
leaves, say 4-6 of them, or as many as you can leave on and still pack the
plant, so that when re-potted the plant will have SOME green leaf-tissue
(the basal portions of the leaves you left on) to help it in it`s recovery.
Root trim the plant also.
is it possible to cut off all of an anthurium's leaves (for ease of
and not cripple it? i have an unidentified bird's nest type plant that i
bought as a seedling at a farmer's market. it's now huge and i wanted to
ship or transport it but with those huge leaves sticking out in all
directions, it is very difficult. could i cut off all the leaves and will
sprout again from the crown?
