This guy is growing out of control and seems kinda leggy maybe. I have read you should prune them to keep them bushy but I don’t really know what I’m doing. Any tips?

Make sure your scissors are sterilized and make your cuts are above the petiole or where the leaves come out.
For these, I cut mine in the internodular space (space between two nodes/growth points).
You can propogate the cuttings most of the time, Zebrunas are quite firgiving and prolific.
it's about time to cut mine again πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
You can easily propagate the cuttings in water, they done take that long to grow roots 😊
Or I tend to dip my cuttings in rooting powder and add back to the same pot.
@RJG πŸ˜‚ that’s cute tho
@Mojo Yah but then we have thicc cute
@Yvette I’ve never used rooting powder. You just dip the cuttings in it?
@Amyrosecessna yeah and tap off any excess powder then pop the cutting in soil.
@RJG when you cut them do you place it back down in the soil? My mom does that and hers do great!! I do it and it dies off!! Idk how to keep mine full.
@PlantTherapy yah I just put them back in. The top layer of mine is sphagnum moss. That may help w the rooting.
@RJG okay okay! Thank you!’
@RJG how often should I water?
