is this sunburn?

hello! I have a small worry with my golden sedum :( since it’s starting to get warmer and the sun is out more which as a plant owners made me happy so I rushed to put them out, but ive started slowly putting plants outside and I come back after class to this, though I just want some confirmation, is this plant suffering from sunburn?
3ft to light, direct
8” pot with drainage

It looks like it needs to be pruned. You can clip it back with just any plant clippers/pruners, so there’s an inch or two of plant left. It’ll grow back. And you should bring it indoors if it’s over 80 degrees F.
It's not sunburn. First week: give the plant 2 hours of direct morning Sun rays. You need to increase the sun exposure by 2 hours every week.
@SvelteKingfern well that’s good to hear I thought it was sunburn! The only downside is I’m not at home for an extended period of time during the day so it’s hours at a time since I have classes and work :(( so usually I leave them out and check on them when I get back from work. However, I thank you for this advice! I will use it in the future
@SimpleSucculent what parts should I prune? I’m overly attached to my plants :,)) so I’m worried I’ll harm them if I do too much to them
Just the stem. Try doing it to one Sedum, and if it works, do it to the rest. I understand you’re attached to your plants, but this is the healthiest thing for them.
Don’t cut the leaves.
@SimpleSucculent should I start with the ones leaning over?
@SimpleSucculent you can really do it with any, but the ones leaning over need it most
Oops didn’t mean to reply to myself
@SimpleSucculent thank you! Though I just watered it πŸ—Ώ so I’m not sure if I should do it tmr morning
