The best time to prune is early summer, although pruning may be done almost any time. Cut stems that you want to see branch out, at the spot you would like to see the branches. If you want to root the cuttings, they should be 6" or more. Here's more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/desert-rose/desert-rose-propagation.htm
