Pruning a Jade plant

Zone Paradise, CA 95969 USDA Zone 9a | msandsm added on July 8, 2016 | Answered

I'm having a problem with the way my Jade plant is growing (see pictures). It's gotten very leggy, and the branches are spilling down the sides of the pot. I want to prune it back to encourage new growth. Is there a particular way to prune it so that it will grow upright? I know that it doesn't get enough light, but I have a very small apartment with only two windows. I had it outside last summer, but the leaves burned. I put it in the shade and it recovered. (I will be getting a large, spotlight-type grow light.) But the leggy, spilling-over problem has been getting worse for the past couple of years. I'd appreciate hearing your thoughts.
