Chop or not?

#Sedum so the areas that have nothing? Should I chop it and prop from the steam or only from leaves? She wasn’t in the best place before so she got leggy. Suggestions?

@WinksGirl Trimming your leggy Sedum is a good idea to encourage healthier growth. You can chop the stem to the point where you see healthy growth or leaves. From the cuttings, you can propagate both from stems and leaves.

For stem propagation, allow the cut ends to callous for a day or two, then place them in well-draining soil. Keep the soil slightly moist until new roots form.

For leaf propagation, remove a few healthy leaves, let them callous, and then place them on top of well-draining soil. Mist the soil occasionally to maintain humidity. New plants should develop from the base of the leaves.

Remember, give your Sedum bright, indirect sunlight, and avoid overwatering. With a little care and patience, you'll help your plant become lush and full again!
