i got a succulent in august, it's obviously been pretty light deprived so its grown.... a lot.... upwards....

i was wondering how to go about propagating it, due to the spread out arrangement of its leaves.

i've attempted to propagate some leaves previously, however the sprouts did the same thing, grew very tall and withered away without rooting

i've attached photos of it in august, now, and the attempted propagations.

i love this plant, so any advice is appreciated!

so you do have a plan for better light?
I have one similar. If it stretches over winter, I take the top with a short stem, and it'll grow compact with bright light for summer. Someone else may have better detail- let the stem dry a day before potting?

Your plant can be propagated from a leaf. Take two or three leaves of the plant and lay them on top of moistened soil (not wet). Give it a bit of light and soon (about a week and a half or so) you will notice the roots and tiny leaves growing. Leave the leaf attached to your baby plant and give it a bit more light each day.
