Sedum morganianum, the donkey tail or burro’s tail, is a species of flowering plant in the family Crassulaceae, native to southern Mexico. It is a succulent perennial producing trailing stems up to 60 cm long, with fleshy blue-green leaves and terminal pink to red flowers in summer.
How do you care for a donkey tail succulent?
Whether you want to keep a donkey’s tail indoors or grow it outdoors, make sure to keep your succulent at a shady place that receives bright light in the morning. Moreover, it is important not to overwater this delicate plant or else; its leaves will start shriveling. A Donkey’s Tail plant is non- toxic and safe to have around children and pets.
Unlike many types of succulents, burro’s tail needs a considerable amount of water to keep the leaves attractive and plump. Soak its soil thoroughly and do not water it again until the topsoil dries out completely, especially when kept indoors because it flourishes in the well-drained container. For a more accurate measurement, stick your finger in the water and be sure that it is at least 1-inch deep around your Burro’s tail.
Choosing the right planter for this fun succulent is making sure to use succulent soil and a planter with great drainage holes.
