Established jade leggy plants
Hello How can I make this fairly established jade plant nice and bushy? It’s beginning to become VERY top heavy and is thriving!! I got it from a cutting about 6 years ago and its really coming into its own in its south facing window, I moved it here about a year ago... but think I’ve neglected to see the signs that it’s too top heavy for its own good. There’s also some teeny white spots on some of the leaves, are they anything to worry about ? Photo attached...

You can prune a few inches off of the 2 tall tops which will suppress the vertical growth and allow the lower branching to begin to fill in.
The white spots I believe are excess salts as explained in this article: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/jade-plant/white-spots-on-jade-leaves.htm
