What, if anything, do I do to this bud? Will it sprawl out. And cover area or continue to grow additional flowers? #planthelp

You could cut it off and start a new plant.

Oh, @SikoMa , I don't know. I usually just let plants do what they are going to do. I would let it bloom and then cut it off and plant it.

Its nice to see the flowers bloom but if there are leaves up the flower stalk apparrently they are the easiest to propergate 😁

I'd leave it alone and let it blossom. In my experience, when I cut the flower stalk off an echeveria, it would just send up another. Enjoy it!

So, @alovealoe, will more than one flower grow on the plant?

I've had several echeveria species send up multiple flower stalks. My pvn is relatively new so he hasn't bloomed yet. I can't say for sure this one will.

This is my only succulent I haven't killed yet😁! It looks like it is growing a baby. Does anyone know if this plant will spread! Anything I should be doing? Any advise offered will be greatly appreciated!

It looks good, don't give it too much water, and they like sunshine, put some small chippings in the pot for good drainage

Thanks @clustyroen . It's in a large garden container. I think I need to move it where it gets better drainage. Will this spread?

It will probably get bigger, and make smaller plants (I hope I am right) 😊
