When you have hen and chick's with a protuberance flower stalk, what do you do with it? Replant and leave alone?

I do nothing. At least I don't remember doing anything to this stalk last summer, when the photo was taken.

I don't do anthing either. I don't even know if there are seeds in it. So I just leave enough alone.
Although yours doesn't seem to be the same kind as mine, they do have the same sort of bloom.

m2k, your's looks more like Sempervivum than mine. Look here: http://yann.cochard.free.fr/images/13/1301.jpg

Baa, I think mine is that variety too but with less prominent purple coloration in the tips.
