Dear Tsuh Yang,

        Yes, it is possible to cut off all leaves of an anthurium specimen 
and still have a nice plant in six months or so. That´s what I did in every 
plant I brought from the field. Otherwise I would have to bring more or less 
20 huge leafy Anthuriums in the plane! What a suitcase I would need! The 
only problem is that some species are rather slow growers. I have a plant of 
Anthurium thrinax I brought from Amapá state in August 2000 and it only has 
two leaves (the second one appeared two months ago)...

                Very best wishes,
