i have a question about my graptoveria


so they have been growing great and at one time they were growing straight up no problems now they are getting top heavy it looks like what would be the best way to support them so they grow straight up? or is it normal for them fall over like this? also these little guys that grow off the fallen leafs can i put them in a separate pot and would they grow on there own? im just curios so if i wanted to i could share this plant because i dont know how else i would be able to. here are some pictures to help explain better.










these are the little guys im talking about

Yep its normal for them to lean over like that, they sure look very healthy! Also yes you can either leave the sprouting leaves in there or transfer to a separate pot, your preference. You can also take stem cuttings, just cut at least a 2"-3" piece and let the end dry a bit or dip in rooting hormone and stick it in good soil, the donor(? Lol) plant will grow right back, thicker, or bushier, than before ok? I hope this helps you, ��

I don't put mine in water though, I never use water to root succulents, of course its totally your choice, I do know some who do. I dip in hormone powder, honey, willow water whatever you use then straight into soil. Or as I mentioned let the tip dry for a few days, then stick into your soil. Ok? It's really very simple, especially if your plants are as healthy as yours look! Good luck! (not that you'll need it!) ��

You can cut the tops off let them callous over for a few days and place them on top of dry soil and they will roots(takes a few weeks) then can put them back in the pot if you want a fuller pot. Or remove a few of the bottom leaves and space them out in the pot and make more of the babies u see in ur pics.. this requires a bit more patience tho.
