pruning a kalanchoe
At first I thought I had a chandelier plant but after reading about the mother of thousands, that may be what I have. My plant is about 6 feet tall. It lives in a pot in the greenhouse. I am in zone 9b. My plant started out with one main stem/trunk and many leaves branching out and now all of a sudden the main stem has split into 3 and it is flowering, which I am very excited about. It is so tall though that it is falling over. I want to know the proper time and pruning techniques. If I just hack it off, will it come back?

You can prune it back and it will regrow. You can do so at any time, but some people like to wait until right after blooming to do it.
But, with this plant, if it is floppy and falling over, it may indicate that it is not getting enough light.
