My sempervivum has several pups and they are at least half the size of the mother, I want to remove them but there is no stem or roots and I'm scared if I detach them that they will not grow. They are tightly bound to the main stem? I have recently placed it in a larger pot to encourage growth but is it ok to remove them now or should I wait?

You can cut them off. They will root. But, mother plant in going to look ?😕? Humm .... Strange. Bare.

Its best to remove pups when there small, so you dont scar mother plant.

Its just growing natural.
Alot of people are gonna be jealous of your beautiful plant. 😎

Being you just repotted it. It will encourage it to grow and make more babies. Get new babies off while still small. So you can twist, break, or cut them off, without defacing mother. Thumbs up
