I have a mature Amazon sword in a 60L tropical tank which recently shot out a single stem with no leaves. It has now reached the surface of the tank, and extended out 2" above the water line.

Is it a flower stem? Or is it reproducing vegetatively?

There's nothing on the surface yet.

Excuse the algae, the 2 bristle nose pleco's are on strike.
