The flower turns brown and falls off leaving the beginnings of a seed pod behind. If you can clip or snap off the greenish bracts that hold the flower and hide the early seed pod, do so. Sometimes there is another flower on the same stem, occasionally 3. Wait until they are all done and snip the stem where it meets the main plant. Don't remove any leaves.
