I have a plant that appears to be about to flower and it has gotten over a foot tall and fallen over. It hasn't flowered yet. Is there anything I can do?

I wouldn't be surprised to see the very end of your budding stem continue to turn upward as it tries to face the sun, even as it's laying down. There is really not much you can or should do about this, as it's a perfectly normal sign of a perfectly normal life-cycle of Hens and Chicks. You could try to stake it up if you really wanted to, but be careful to not disturb the new rosettes that should already have formed nearby.
