Sedum Donkey's Tail Succulent

167 reviews   |  
  • This listing features our beautiful rooted Sedum Burrito / Donkey's Tail in 2 inch or 4 inch size.

     This is an extremely fragile plant, so we'll try our best to pack it very carefully with multiple layers of bubble wrap and peanuts, and the box will have fragile signs. However, we cannot control how USPS handle packages. Therefore please understand that we cannot offer replacement or refund if some leaves break during transportation! We're more than happy to share tips on leaf propagation, so please feel free to let us know if you have any question.

     Sedum Burrito, also known as Burro's Tail or Donkey's Tail Succulent, is native to Mexico. It is an easy-to-grow perennial succulent and can tolerate any types of soil with good drainage. It has rounded and fleshy silver-green leaves that are densely packed on hanging stems.

     Ship bare root.

  • Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most 2" plants are shipped in their original plastic pot with soil. Fragile and big 4" plants are shipped bareroot to ensure their safety. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days depending on availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied). Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging. We do not ship outside of the continental United States.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

a year later

it's been a little over a year since i ordered my burros tail for the first time. i ordered mine in may of last year and i wanted to give insight on how everything has been. i started out with 3 and i've ended up with over 103. this was completely intentional because i wanted to achieve the waterfall kind of effect of a mature burros tail. mine is nowhere near mature but look at them! it's only been a year and look how much they've grown! i've seen so many videos of people telling the viewer to not grow their own burros tail because it just takes "too long" and they won't "look right." i grew all of these by myself. all of the original succulents i obtained from this website, sadly, didn't make it. this isn't the websites fault though. it was me, i killed them. i basically bought them for their leaves and i think i came out just peachy. as for light, i live in the panhandle of florida. it's WAY too hot for these guys to be outside but they do love their window sunlight. my uv grow light also does wonders for these guys. they started growing so fast with the grow light! it's great because it's not like they keep growing upwards, they eventually can't hold themselves up anymore and will lay down. as for water, i have been watering these guys mainly on a weekly basis. i've noticed that if you water from the top, they don't really like it. my plastic pot has a dish which i fill up twice with water because of how fast the soil slurps up the water. if i deem the soil "too wet" then i'll wait a full two weeks before i water them but give them the same amount of water. as for handling, they are so fragile. if something so much as brushes against a leaf, it will absolutely fall off. if you, a pet, a child, some stranger bumps into it and it falls on the floor... just remember ****** is a crime and frowned upon in most states. overall, my journey with my many, many, many babies has been wonderful.
