I've had this farfugium japonicum for 2 years and have never seen anything like the stem with the yellow flowers. What do I do? Cut it off?

Your plant is flowering. That's generally a sign that you're keeping it happy. You can remove the flower stalk if you don't want it (i.e. you're growing it for the foliage); otherwise, enjoy the flowers and wait until the blooms finish before removing it.

Just leave it alone and enjoy the flowers! 😺
The key to orchid growing is to match the orchid to your conditions.
