You don’t need to prune aeoniums for size or shape, because they stay naturally tidy and small. Regular trimming and grooming will help keep your aeoniums looking their best. Snip off any dead leaves or spindly, malformed stems at the base using sharp scissors or shears.
Also question is, how do you prune aeonium trees?
Then, how do you take care of Black Rose succulents?
Let there be light all around the Black Rose succulent
The Black Rose is an avid sun worshiper, preferring to stay for a minimum of 6 hours under partial shade to full sun. Even so, it should be gradually introduced to intense sun exposure for the plant to acclimate without getting a sunburn on the leaves.

How to Force Your Aeonium to Branch Out
- You will need some nice clean shears to cut right on the stem. You’ll be cutting the stem of your Aeonium.
- For a taller plant, you will want to cut more. You may cut up to 6 inches. For smaller plants, you may only need to cut the stem down to as small as half of an inch.
Unlike other succulents, which prefer dry soil, aeoniums prefer soil that is moist but not wet. They can produce roots along their stems, which you may notice if the plant gets pot bound or the stems fall and touch the soil. Make sure these roots do not dry out.
Aeoniums are most commonly known for their striking rosettes made up of dense, waxy leaves growing out of a single stem. Stems can be long and branched-out or short and stubby. A unique feature of aeoniums is the way they grow and branch out. They reproduce and form offsets from a single flowerhead.
Your echeverias and aeoniums are growing leggy because of poor light levels. They need somewhere warm, with lots of direct sunlight; too little and they wander to find more. You may be cutting them back too hard and discarding the bit you should keep, which is the top half of the plant.
Simply fill a pot with very well-drained succulent mix soil, dip the cutting and parent plant in rooting hormone and then put the Aeonium division into the mix. It is the same for the parent plant, as well.
