Burro's Tail Care

Water your plants when the soil is about 50% to entirely dry. Do not overwater your plants at any cost. You may water your plants less frequently during winter months or in less light.
Your Burro's Tail will need a lot of light. Mostly bright, indirect light is good for the plant, but it also needs some direct light.
Your Burro's Tail may not be bothered by high humidity, but it can appreciate the occasional misting to remove dust.
This plant can adapt to indoor temperatures, but it prefers warmer temperatures. If the temperature is too cold or too hot, it might complain.
Burro's Tail can cause irritation in the mouth and stomach if ingested, as well as vomiting.
You can use a vine cutting to propagate a Burro's Tail. Cut a section of the vine that is around 5 inches long. Cut it just below the lowest leaf on the vine. Remove the lower leaves so you have a clear stem before rooting. You can root the cutting directly in moist potting mix that is suitable for cactus or succulents. Try to press only the cut stem into the soil, allowing the remaining leaves to stay exposed and get good air circulation to avoid rotting. Once the roots are a few inches long and you see some new growth, you can properly pot up the whole plant!
