Yes. I remove large leaves and leave just new small ones :D
This is how original ficus looks now, 1 and a half year later - 26 individual plants and counting :)

You can defoliate the ficus easily. I just did it to my tree about 3 weeks ago and after about 10 days it flushed back like crazy. Summertime is the best time for ficus defoliation.

The original mother tree died eventually after trying to force backbudding lower on the trunk and was replaced by it´s own cutting that I expect to be as thick as mother tree was in some 2 years, maybe less, they grow pretty fast.
