Not the easiest to prop but as long as you have good light and enough water grows pretty well. Have new babies on a bunch of plants. Took a while to trot from a cutting though. Had new growth before …
i’ve knocked her over a few times and i got her VERY small so she’s been growing very long and leggy even though she is in a bright light spot.

This plant was a gift from my brother last year and since then it has grown so much and is really easy to care for. Plus it’s super pretty.
Every so often I remove a leaf and a whole new stem starts. I’ve also cut one off and stuck it back in the dirt and it easily took root.
It makes a good beginning succulent. Mine grew a third (3rd) stem on its own and manages to survive infrequent waterings

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
