She has begun to get tall and leggy. How and when do I prune her to keep her more bushy?

I love these plants! They are so easy to propagate! All you have to do is pinch off a few inches and put it right back in the soil. It'll easily sprout new roots and take off! (:
@sarahsalith but it won’t hurt the mother plant? I do t want to lose her, she is from my grandma’s funeral.
@WeLovePlants no- it won't hurt the mother plant. I'm sorry about your grandmother, but I'm so glad that you have something to remember her. β™₯️ As you watch your plant, you'll see little roots growing from the stems- that's a perfect place to replant that stem. They will also bloom when given lots of sun. Mine can bloom several times a year.
@sarahsalith thank you!
@WeLovePlants you are most welcome. (:
It also might need more light to keep it from getting leggy.
I agree with @simplepleasure Katy’s love bright direct sunlight so she will do better by a window, preferably facing south if you can. Anytime you prune a succulent you will get new growth where you prune her
And you can prune her stems from the flowers that have died all the way down to the leaves. New growth will form there and you’ll get new flowers in a couple of weeks if she’s getting enough light
