Give it time, the flower head will bulk up, and then you’ll see the beautiful tiny flowers appear on the flower stalk. Keep it watered, they like a drink. They are slow to multiply, but I’ve propagated them successfully by leaf cuttings. Plan to do a tutorial in the next couple of weeks so watch this space 👍🏼
