I'm thinking this is not a leaf. Seeing that this is a young, single stalk plant in a 4" pot, what would you all do? Cut the flower (pod?) away to let the plant focus on leaves? Or watch it flower?

@UltraKoreanfir I found an interesting article about letting it flower and not letting it. Yes like @ladyliberal said letting it flower can stunt the plants growth.

Watch it flower! That looks amazing.
I guess some people don’t find the flowers attractive, but I would want to see it flower occasionally., especially if it is a new plant. Have you ever seen it flower before?
@nellz4estfairyz I have not. I'm afraid it will take a lot of energy away from the plant πŸ€”
I like to let it flower at least once just to see what it looks like. It’s exciting! ❀️
@UltraKoreanfir I didn’t even know this plant flowers! Wow! As if it’s not already gorgeous!
@UltraKoreanfir I absolutely love the variegation on this plant. If you are worried about stunting the plant’s growth, I would remove the flower, but if you are wanting to see what it looks like I would leave it be. Ultimately it is your plant, so you get to pick what you want to do 😊
@buzzie Thanks for the article, Dawn! My mind is made up and the inflorescence will be removed!
@buzzie The deed is done. Now if I could only just stick that inflorescence in the dirt and prop a new one 😁
@UltraKoreanfir lol I know. I was so curious to see what the flower or inflorescence looked like I had to look it up. At least the article shows you what it looks like when it blooms. I would have removed it too after knowing it could stunt its growth.
