  • About Plant- The donkey's tail succulent (Sedum morganianum) is a popular and easy-to-grow trailing succulent with rows of fleshy, tear-drop shaped leaves. This plant is also commonly known as lamb's tail, burro's tail, or horse's tail. Some other closely related Sedum varieties may also be known by any of these names. These succulents make excellent hanging plants or they can be used as trailers in small pots.


    Burros Tail or Donkey's Tail Plant Care

    A mature specimen might have branches up to two feet long, with dozens of grey-green, plump leaves lined up like droplets. Flowers readily emerge in late summer in hanging clusters of small blossoms. The flowers can be red, yellow, or white.


    Light- These plants prefer full sun and are well-suited for placing near a sunny window.


    Water- During the spring and summer, donkey's tail needs weekly watering. Make sure that the plant is draining well. In the winter months, scale back to monthly watering.


    Soil- The well-drained soil should have an ideal pH of around 6.0 (slightly acidic).


    Temperatures- These succulents prefer average temperatures of 65 degrees F to 70 degrees F. They can survive colder winter temperatures as low as 40 degrees F, but do prefer a warmer climate.


    Fertilizer- At the start of spring, feed the donkey's tail succulent a controlled release, balanced 20-20-20 fertilizer, which contains equal parts nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.


    Propagation and Repotting- These plants can be propagated, or bred, by seed or by cuttings. Cuttings of individual leaves can be sprouted by placing them into a succulent or cacti mix, then covering the leaves with a glass or plastic enclosure until they sprout. 


    Repotting is most successful in the warmer seasons. To repot a succulent:

    • Make sure the soil is dry before starting the process.
    • Gently remove the plant from the current pot.
    • Knock away the old soil from the plant, making sure to remove any rotted or dead roots in the process.
    • If there are any major cuts on the roots, treat them with a fungicide.
    • Place the plant in the new pot and backfill the extra space with potting soil, spreading the roots out within the new, larger pot.
    • Leave the plant dry for a week or so, then begin to water lightly to reduce the risk of root rot.
