Planting Advice

If your succulent looks like it's stretching out of its pot it's a sign it's not getting enough light. Once this happens it's difficult to get your succulent back to a compact shape. You can try propagating the plant, taking a cutting one to two inches from the plant's base. Place the cutting in a shady spot and give it just a little water (make sure it's not bone-dry) and let it re-shoot new growth.
