My string of buttons is growing aerial roots!!!

So my plant is growing aerial roots and I couldnโ€™t be happier! With that being said should I leave it or somehow cut it off to start a new plant? If I do cut it, where do I cut it off from?
4โ€ pot with drainage
Last watered 6 months ago

You can leave it or cut it off and propagate. It's up to you.
If you want to propagate, cut off so the root is included in the cutting. Let the cutting dry in the air till the wound completely dry and caloused. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP.

Next, place the cutting in dry soil for succulents, make sure it's placed deep enough so it won't fall over, put the pot with the cutting in bright indirect light and DO NOT WATER for 5 days.
Next, water slightly around the cutting, so the soil is slightly moist, every 3 days, and for 6 weeks. Do not pour water on the cutting directly.The cutting will grow nice roots in this time.
You can then water in the normal way.
Good luck ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿชด๐Ÿ‘
