Gardeners' Notes:

My single, small plant now has four additional small plants around it and has become root bound. I'll try repotting it in a broader pot, but I wonder if it will keep having babies! I bought it in the Spring of 2013 from a high quality nursery in a four-inch pot. It bloomed. My husband waters so I didn't notice all the new plants until I started building another large succulent bowl. Any advice? Each of the new plants is already about 2" X 2".

Is this plant a spreader? I know it doesn't get very tall, but will it increase in width/area?
