Burro’s tail is a showstopper in a hanging basket, where its long, luxurious stems can drape over the side. The stems are heavily leaved and do look rather like a donkey’s tail (if it were green). Healthy, mature specimens can produce large numbers of donkey tails reaching a length of three or four feet!
LIGHT: These plants love very bright light with a minimum of four hours daily. Some direct light is welcome!
WATERING: Unlike many succulents, these plants need quite a bit of water to keep the many leaves plump and attractive. Water deeply and regularly throughout the growing season, but wait for the soil to dry between thorough waterings.
Size: comes in 12 cm diameter nursery pots
