All - Please forgive if this is an ignorant question, but should I cut the stalk or not cut the stalk? I cut yucca stalks every year, but this thing looks more like an agave- that said, it bloomed last year and didn't die. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

Welcome @Jeremy96 That is a pretty plant and not an ignorant question. I don't believe I would remove the bloom stalk until it dries and slips free easily. Unfortunately it may not be attractive to let it remain on the plant.

You may want to pose this question on the Cacti & Succulent forum for those with more experience. https://garden.org/forums/view...
