this plant's leaves are sticking out in all directions (as opposed to growing straight up vertically) so it's hard to prune it partially leaving some leaf material or to do it as you suggest.  i have received some anth. in the past that were all pruned (only the stems and roots remaining) and they never put out new growth.  but i guess it depends on the species and the plant.  thanks for all your suggestions and replies.
