Other than pinching off the runners, what is the best way to trim the mother plant? Just cut off some random leaves until the desired bushiness is achieved?
I have the exact same problem with my bronze crypts and it was suggested you can cut them off with relative abandon without hurting the plant. I haven't tried that yet, instead reaching in and pinching them off at the bottom of the stalks, leaving at least four or five of the original rosette. The out-runners have been pretty easy to pull up if you get them soon enough before they start sinking their own roots.

Of course, having too much growth is way better than not enough! :)
