hi there! i have what i think is a succulent (the leaves are fuzzy) it's a pretty tall plant, and i was considering cutting it down and re-potting it. is this possible? do i just cut it and then let it scab over before re-planting? thanks for the help!

Welcome, I'm happy you found us. I'm trying to picture your possible plant. I don't suppose yo have a picture of it?
Are the leaves thick? When you break a piece off, is there sap?
Most succulents can be rooted just how you described. But I wouldn't cut up the whole plant until you see how a cutting or two work out for you.

Some succulents, you can cut part way back and they will branch out from near the base making a bushier plant. Again, a picture would tell us more.
