Sedum burrito - Burrito Burros

The Burrito Burro's Tail is a trailing succulent plant, native to Mexico. The plant creates long drooping tendrils several feet long. It has fat blue-green leaves growing on stems. This succulent will give you wonderful pink blooms in the spring. Burrito Burro's Tail makes an excellent indoor plant, particularly well- suited to growing in a hanging basket. You do want to grow it where it can get some direct sunlight which promotes the blue- green color in the leaves.

It is a rugged plant and withstands extreme temperature changes. It likes an area with low humidity, and grows best when kept around 68 degrees F (20 degrees C). Like all succulents, this plant is susceptible to over watering. Water only when dry. The "Burrito Burro's Tail" is not a hungry plant, thus you only need to feed it occasionally with a low nitrogen fertilizer - maybe only once or twice a year It can be propagated very easily from stem or leaf cuttings. Take your stem cutting and simply remove the lower leaves, then allow the cut surface to dry for 24 hours before planting it in a moistened cactus mix. Rooting will occur within a matter of a few days.
