I have been growing an asparagus fern for a few months now, and its been doing well enough that I've split it into two pots back in the spring. Recently, one of them, which I've situated in a sunny, east facing window, has been growing a couple of very thick and stiff stems that grow much larger than the rest of the plant.
Research I've done online all points to legginess when it reaches for sun, but as far as I can tell, there's no shortage of sunlight for this plant. I've pruned them back a couple of times for aesthetic reasons, but they continue to come back as new stalks. I'd rather remove these since they're the only parts of the plant that are so tall, but they are pretty stubborn. Is there a reason the keep growing?
