My young B52 is growing a flower stalk. Some on here say cut 1-2 inches, and others say immediately. Does it matter?

@FunkeePanda, Depends. Cut it immediately if you don't want to try and propagate flower stalk cuttings. If you want to try and make flower stalk cuttings then let it grow 2-3 inches, then cut then plant deep and keep a little more than moist.
