Burro’s Tail

Sedum morganianum

Burro’s Tails are a good option for a hanging pot or draping over a shelf. thrive when given at least 4 hours of direct sunlight daily, but can tolerate indirect sunlight. They prefer drier climates, so allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings and water thoroughly. They are suseptible to root rot, so be careful not to overwater. Avoid splashing the leaves when watering to prevent the leaves from rotting. If you notice pale green leaves, provide less sunlight. The leaves of this long tailed succulent are very delicate, so take care not to bump into it. Burro’s Tails are very easily propegated with the dropped leaves. Fertilize once per month during spring and summer with a diluted low-potency chemical fertilizer.
