Burro's Tail in a Hanging Basket 6"
6" in a Hanging Basket $40
Burro’s Tail is a heat and drought tolerant plant well suited for warm to temperate regions.
The thick stems appear woven or plaited with leaves.
The succulent is green to gray green or even blue green and may have a slight chalky look.
This southern beauty should be grown in well-draining soil, ideally of a gritty or sandy texture.
This will help to prevent root rot if the plant receives too much watering or a heavy summer rainfall, as the gritty soil will help the excess water to drain away from the plant's roots.
Burro’s tail also prefers slightly acidic soil with a pH of around 6, though it will grow in a range of soils.
Like most succulents, burro’s tail is drought-tolerant once established.
If kept indoors as a houseplant, it will likely need watering much less than if kept outside.
Around one generous watering each month will probably suffice, but pay attention to the condition of your plant and its soil, rather than adhering to a watering schedule.
Always opt to give a heavy, infrequent watering rather than a frequent light watering, as the heavy watering helps to flush salts and other residue minerals out of the soil.
A build-up of these salts can affect plant health, so this is an easy hack to help prevent this, and also saves you from having to water as often.
Burro’s Tail enjoys plenty of sun with some shade.
It tolerates heat incredibly well, but it can suffer from burns if positioned in too much bright light.
If you keep this plant indoors, the best spot will be in one which receives bright indirect light.
A bright windowsill with some protection, such as a sheer blind would work well.
