Burrito’s tail is a heat and drought tolerant plant well suited for warm to temperate regions. The thick stems appear woven or plaited with leaves. The succulent is green to gray green or even blue green and may have a slight chalky look. Try a burro’s tail houseplant or use it on the patio or full sun garden bed.

1. Pot burrito sedums in a hanging planter or basket so that the stems trail over the edge.
2. Choose a spot where the plant receives at least four hours of direct sun daily, such as near a west- or south-facing window with partial shade.
3. Water the burrito sedum weekly during the active growing season, from late March until early October.
4. Feed the burrito sedum once in spring just as new growth emerges from the stem tips. Water deeply immediately after feeding.
5. Repot the burrito sedum every two to three years in spring. Move the plant into a new hanging planter with a diameter increase of 1 inch.

1. Cover the lip of the hanging planter with a length of split garden hose to provide a cushion for the heavy, trailing stems.
2. Apply the fertilizer at half the recommended strength to prevent root damage.
3. If you see such damage, move the plant to a brighter location and decrease watering slightly to see whether the problem corrects itself.
1. Excess water can cause the stems to rot and even kill the succulent.
2. Stop fertilizing in fall and winter and water sparingly during this rest.
