Q.Mystery Plant Growing Out Of My Agave
I have a fairly large agave growing in a flower bed in our yard. It has several “puppies” growing around it. A week or so ago, I noticed a small “stalk” growing up, next to one of the puppies. I’d never seen any others of these in the 7 or 8 years we’ve had the plant. It’s now around 4 feet high, and has some buds on it, like maybe we’re going to get some blooms. Is this normal? Something we can expect more of?

This is an agave flower stalk! There will be no concern, here. You can leave it, or you can cut it with no harm done.
