Sedum burrito, commonly known as Baby Donkey Tail or Burro’s Tail, is a popular succulent plant known for its distinctive trailing growth habit. This plant features long, hanging stems densely covered with small, rounded, fleshy green leaves. The leaves are tightly packed along the stems, resembling a tail, which gives the plant its common name.

Native to Mexico, Sedum burrito thrives in well-draining soil and prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much can cause the leaves to burn. This plant is particularly drought-tolerant and should be watered sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, a common issue with succulents.

One of the charming aspects of Baby Donkey Tail is its ability to produce small, star-shaped flowers, typically in shades of pink or red. These blooms can add an extra layer of interest to the plant, although they are not as commonly seen as the attractive foliage.

In terms of care, it’s important to handle Sedum burrito gently, as the leaves can easily detach from the stems. This characteristic, however, also makes it easy to propagate new plants from fallen leaves.

While Sedum burrito is generally considered non-toxic, it’s always a good practice to keep plants out of reach of pets and children. Its unique appearance and ease of care make Baby Donkey Tail a popular choice for hanging baskets, container gardens, and as a decorative houseplant.
