My burrito plant is hands-down one of my top 3 favorite plants because it looks cool. It also grows quickly of it has ample light. I had it under a grow light for a couple of months, and then moved i…
Awesome plant! Very delicate though, so only purchase if you have room to let it sit all by itself undisturbed. Don’t want to place it anywhere like a desk where you could bump it. Will drop “leaves”…
this was my first plant i’ve kept alive! the leaves on the burro’s tail are verrryyyyyy sensitive and when taking mine home lost TONS of leaves but surprisingly bounced back and is one of my favorite…
These guys are slowwww growers, so patience is important. They are also prone to dropping leaves if you touch them the wrong way, so handle with care. The dropped leaves self-propagate though, so i…
This plant does not like to be touched. Baby this plant but don’t over water it. Recently mine has not made much growth progress so I hope it picks up the pace soon again because it is a beautiful pl…
Such a unique beauty! Super low maintenance, just keep it in the sunlight and it will be very happy. Mine grows so fast and due to the fragility of the leaves I have propagated many fallen pieces.
The thick chunky leaves are fun to look at and the plant seems to grow fine indoors. It’s easy to plant more of them with the leaves! Be careful though, the leaves all pop off pretty easily.
I got this plant at a flea market where it only retained its leaves near the top. But once I repotted it it grew like crazy. So easy to care for and the leaves propagate easily in water.
This is a fast growing, adorable little plant! The only downside is it’s very delicate and the leaves fall off even with the gentlest handling and leave sad little bald spots.
I love this one! I only water when most of the little leaves are shrivelled (bottom watering) and he sits in afternoon sun everyday in a west facing window 🙂.
How to care for Burro's Tail
Burro's Tail needs 0.5 cups of water every 12 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Burro's Tail may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Burro's Tail in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Burro's Tail after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
