Hi, I've had this plant for about 4 months and one of the stems has grown a lot as is leaning over the side of the pot.

I'm not sure whether to cut the stem off and re pot it, to repot the entire plant or to leave it. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Don't worry, it's doing what it does. It is a donkey tail sedum after all and donkeys have long tails. Keep it in as bright a location as possible. You won't have to repot it until it's about twice as big as the pot it's in.

If the stubby little leaves get knocked off, just put them back in the pot and they will root to form more donkey tails to hang down. Be sure to not have it in too much sun. I have sunburned them.

That is a lovely Sedum morganianum. That is how it typically grows, trailing stem downwards. They are really good on hanging baskets later on. Given enough bright light and cool sunny mornings, it can even bloom.

This is mine, always outdoors in part sun/shade.
