    try using a sponge and some round up concentrate might have to do a couple of times to kill it then cut it back and if its still persistent try cutting off the sunlight

    I'd use Round-up Pro. After killing it, I'd cut what I could with a root cutting hand saw. With what's left, treat with stump killer. By the way, make use of the round-up and treat that stuff by the faucet. :D Good luck.

    definitly use roundup. I usually throw a little fertilizer in the mix. The leaves of the plant open up to take in the fert and bang get the roundup. It seems I get a quicker kill using this method. once its good and dead you should be able to pull it out.

    Don't kill it, bring it back to the office alive as your mascot.

    Kill it with whatever, then cut it out of there with a handsaw. If you can't do it with a hand saw, get a pole pruner. :D
