if i don't want any babies, where should i cut the stalks off at? thanks
You can trim off the stalk at the base of the plant.
Are you asking how to stop the plant from forming new babies? Or just the best way to remove those that are there (in which case I agree with mek.'s advice)?
just cutting the ones it has off, but could i stop it fro having babies if i wanted to? i really dont want to stop it right now, but you never know in the future. thanks
The plant will continue to send up the stolons to make the babies as long as the plant is healthy. If you don't want to deal with the babies, you can cut off these stolons as soon as you notice them.
yea, i figured that since i don't need the babies right now, it would help the plant concentrate all it's energy to foliage and the root system. this should make the leaves grow faster i believe. thanks guys
Baily, you might be right about energy focusing on shoots instead of foliage, but if it's fact, I would think very little energy is used on shoots.
As long as a plant is healthy, given proper nutrients and light, it should balance out.
There's nothing prettier than a Spider with side shoots. Whether it's green or variegated. Especially when hanging in a non-cluttered area, with room to spare.
Of course, looks are a matter of opinion. Toni
oops. i'll let them grow back.
