What about just tying the petioles together in a sheaf, and then just 
crumpling the leaves together with a cloth or paper wrapped around them? Even 
if the leaves arrive mangled, some of the photosynthetic apparatus will 
survive, and that will help the plant recover slightly faster. Just an idea.

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 it

sprout again from the crown?
