    when damaged or under stress, portions of plant tissue may be damaged. When times agin become good, the plant occasionaly heals the wounds with buts/shoots (this is taken advantage of my hortaculturasts by deadheading and pinching back) Note i learned: succulents do not respond well when pinched back!
    that makes no logic

    depends on the succulent. my jade plants and crown of thorns look ALOT better if they are pinched back to encourage branching.

    Yes, Crassulae pretty much require pruning, they can get really goofy looking if you don't (plus you can give everyone you know a Jade plant of their own- we must give one away every 2 weeks or so)
    One plant that doesn't like pruning too much is S.purpurea, though- the first (and so far only) one I bought from home depot was sorta going dormant, and using my "plant instincts" I snipped off all of the (proper name is escaping me totally right now) "dormancy scapes" and killed it outright


    But occasional stress seems to do wonders for most plants, as most people here likely know cactii won't even try to flower if they aren't kept really dry and kinda cool over winter

    And of course the classic Snake Plant, which doesn't seem to need anything [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
