Chop and prop, or no?
Okay! So, I've had this tradescantia zebrina for a while now; when I originally got her, she was just as big around as the pot. Now, though... A whole different story πŸ˜‚ It's definitely time for a repot, but I wanted some opinions: should I just put her in a hanging pot, and let those leaves keep growing, or should I try and propagate them and plant them in the same pot, so she grows a bit bushier?
Either way she'll be going up a pot size or two, I'm just terrible at making aesthetic choices πŸ˜…

(One picture is from the first day I had her, the other I took ten minutes ago. Definitely some extreme growth!!) #tradescantiazebrina

That’s a very pretty plant.. I have one but it’s not as full.. but I did cut it, propagated it and replanted the cutting in the same pot. Hopefully one day I have a full bushy one lol.. me personally would propagate some cuttings and make it bushier .. that’s my vote.. I like that look better..
