Help much appreciated!
My mature succulent (photo attached) has over the years grown out 3 branches which are now climbing out of the pot. There are so many micro roots growing out of almost every branch. What should I do with them? Leave them or cut them off and propagate? If so, how? Thanks so much guys :D

Nice! You can cut below the growing root area part, and plant them directly to a smaller container or back to main container. Usually I do not water yet, so maybe after a couple of days, then I water. They have roots so it is ready to absorb moisture. I do dab some cinnamon on the cut end as anti-fungal measure. Just apply it on the cut end, not on the roots.

Typically you would want to dry out and callus the cut off part, so no watering yet initially once stuck back in soil the first time around. But since there are roots already, after a couple days you can water. Just make sure as always to use a container with drain holes and well draining, gritty media.

If your weather permits it, you can bring them out, in part shade first to acclimate to your outdoor conditions then to a sunnier early morning sun area later on.
