    Try adding one more point near the right hand point that represents the end/tip of the frond and bringing that last right hand point down below zero. So that is goes up instead of down. You can also make the tips pointer by going the the Frond generators -> 'Width' blue curve, add a point right next to the right hand point (which represents the width of the frond near the tip) and lowering that some.

    Here are two picture of the curves to help demonstrate what I mean.

      I've also found a way to do the same direction force. it gives better control over the process.
