That looks like etiolation caused by it not fully going dormant in winter or lack of light while it still wasn’t in dormancy, You’re not supposed to water at all over winter to encourage dormancy.

Good news is that you got three new pups coming up that will all grow normal as long as there’s enough light.

for the winter. last year i covered it and it grew
skinny over the winter. this sound like a good idea ?
