I have a huge aeonium that has sent out a beautiful huge stalk (I've only had the plant for a year). As you notice in the picture, I have to put a small table in front of the plant to hold the stalk up. It is in the middle of blooming. After blooming, it is my understanding that the plant will die. Is there any way to save it? As of yet, there are no babies below. It's so beautiful and so sad. (I don't seem to be able to upload the photo....)

It does not produce offsets, so must be propagated by seed. When your plant finishes flowering you will have 100s of new seeds. I have a flowering succulent that will die after leaving me some seeds.

NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
