The flowers have finished blossoming, now what do I do with the raceme. Leave it, cut it off, or what?

I cut mine off. Echeveria runyonii 'Topsy Turvy' is not generally propagated by seeds but rather by removal of the offsets and by division of the clumps.
I garden for the pollinators.

I have one with lots of tiny babies, the Center / mother plant started to form buds but never opened. :(.

I probably overwatered it, causing bud blast.
