|I hv these kalanchoe plants that i love, but they get so skinny and tall which i dont like.
Ive seen them in stores w big thick stems and compact growth. What am i doing wrong?
Do they want to be in full sun?
I may cut off and replant...

|There are hundreds of kalanchoes. Generally they like some sun. I think that they might grow leggy as they try to reach for more sun.

|Cut them off where you like leaving a few nodules, they will sprout off.
Also tops and stems will root easy.
Even the leaves.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

|Trimming is an option.
That species is just a large plant:
Felt Plant (Kalanchoe beharensis)
The 'Fang' variety stays much more compact, IME with it:
Felt Plant (Kalanchoe beharensis 'Fang')
