Summer heat dormant String of Buttons?
Should I move her inside to my south facing window (a cooler spot) or keep her on my west facing deck and just wait until fall for growth?

Her bb pups aren't growing much at all since the first heat wave here in Southern California. πŸ˜žβ˜€ πŸ”₯...

(She also got a little sun burned when the seasons changed too quickly in late spring.)

I would bring her in to protect her from the extreme heat and sun. Try to avoid direct sunlight.
I think a lot depends on your location. Here in Texas, a West window would indeed fry anything unless there was something like a sheer curtain to help block some of the light ( you may want to add something like that)
@Pegster @THEDIRTDIGGER thank you! I decided o move her inside. I hope she likes her new spot (second Pic) 😊 I swapped her out with my rescued bb pink ice plant (first Pic) which I think is rooted enough to withstand the shader part of my deck. 😊
I think putting her near a window is your best bet! Mine is that way and mine is great 😊 I hope yours grows and loves her new spot πŸŒ΅πŸ€žπŸ’š
@queenkeazy she's been by my southern window for a month. I repotted her with my crassula Springtime for company πŸ˜‰ So far so good... well see if she gets growing again! Your bb looks like it might be a
Crassula Rupestris (baby's necklace) instead of Crassula perforata (string of buttons). So similar... but the buttons are bigger and more angular shaped.
