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, I have links at the end of this post.
As you might be able to see on the image above, this plant produces stunning pink flowers – for more information about these flowers, see here for the burro’s tail succulent flower post.
If you are interested in buying your own, here is a link to where they are currently sold online. Now that we have clarified the #plantgoals, below is the growth progress.
The main thing to note here is: WOW. In just three years this has gone from a small propagation experiment to a truly stunning plant. Not only has it grown significantly, it is now displaying brilliant pink tones. For future updates on this plant, the owner is @mochimonster123 on instagram
Where to buy
These plants are relatively easy to find, and buying online is pretty safe because they are not as delicate as some other plants. Since they are so easy to propagate they are often sold as single leaf cuttings which can be a very affordable alternative to a mature plant. I have organised the below based on location, as this is often the biggest factor in buying online due to customs regulations etc.
UK & Europe
