Burro’s Tail Succulent Propagation

Burro’s Tail propagation in Vancouver, British Columbia

The Burro’s Tail succulent, also know as Donkey’s tail, or by it’s official name; Sedum morganianum is a stunning succulent which grows like a vine.  Despite it’s unusual appearance, it is in fact a succulent and therefore can be easily propagated just like any other succulent.  This post tracks the progress of a very successful propagation which is grown and tracked on Instagram  @mochimonster123.  Before we get to the growth progress photos, see below a magnificent specimen in the Barbican Centre in London, United Kingdom.  If you are interested in getting one of these to grow, they are available here.

 

Now that we have clarified the #plantgoals, below is the growth progress.
