Caring For Donkeys tail

1) Light: As with many succulents, donkey’s tail thrives best with lots of warm sunlight, though it will tolerate a partial shade location

2) Water: When it comes to watering your donkey’s tail succulent, less is more. Like many succulents, donkey’s tail is drought resistant once established, so you’ll want to water it more frequently during its spring and summer growing season, then taper off throughout the fall and winter months

3) Soil: In order for your donkey’s tail succulent to grow successfully, it should be housed in well-draining, sandy soil. If you plan to plant your succulent in a container (either to keep outdoors or to live inside), opt for a gritty soil mixture suited specifically for cacti or succulents

4) Temperature: Donkey’s tail prefers warm weather, though it stands up better to cooler temperatures than some other succulents. On average, try to maintain an environment of 65 degrees to 75 degrees Fahrenheit whether you keep your plant indoors or outdoors

5) Fertilizer: While fertilizing burro’s tail succulent isn’t totally necessary to its successful growth, it also won’t hurt and can be a great way to give the plant added nutrients. Focus on feeding your plant at the beginning of its growth season in spring, using a controlled release, balanced 20-20-20 fertilizer, which contains equal parts nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium
