My succulent is growing an antennae-like flower from the center. I don't really like the look, it's a bit creepy. How can I remove it or stop it from growing? Thanks!

Take a nail scissor and snip off the inflorescence at the base if you don't like it. The very base of the inflorescence will stay attached for a while (weeks?) until it dries out and is released by the rosette, then all signs of the flower will be gone. Until the next time. Smiling

That was pretty fast Baja. To be faster, you will have to answer the questions before they are asked.
