How to Propagate Burro's Tail (4 Ways & Steps)

Burro's Tail is usually propagated by leaf insertion, Stem Cuttings, Division, and Seeds, however, the survival rate of the first two burro's tail propagation methods is higher. Burro's Tail is usually propagated by leaf insertion, especially when Burro's Tail is used to burst a pot. Now, let's look at the propagation methods of Burro's Tail.

Burro's Tail Propagation Through Leaves Insertion

Usually the most popular method for Burro's Tail propagation is leaf insertion. You can pick some Burro's Tail and propagate it, and a new Burro's Tail will grow. It is easy to peel off some of its leaves. It is not crazy.

Then sprinkle the peeled leaves evenly into the pot as if they were seeds. When you're done, don't rush to water the plants until they've taken root. This will ensure more Burro's tails.

Care for Burro's Tail leaf insertion propagation

After the Burro's Tail leaf insertion propagation, we can hang it on the balcony of the sun, never let it caught in the rain, and can then be careful to observe, if its medium is not particularly dry, do not have to water, if is very dry, you can go to a watering it, in the water, also should pay attention to not put the water on its blade, because it leaves on a layer of powder. If add water, wash it and put the layer of powder.And then when fertilizing. It is also important to pay attention after Burro's Tail leaf insertion propagation that does not apply too much, to prevent root burning, we only need to apply once every season is enough. Also in the time of planting it, also want to try to be careful, do not often touch him, because its leaves are very fragile, a little touch will be easy to fall off, so try not to touch him. It will grow into a Burro's Tail in a short time.

Burro's Tail Propagation Through Stem Cuttings

When we carry out Burro's Tail Propagation From Stem Cuttings, first of all, from the Burro's Tail branches on the choice, of course also can be gained by beheading Burro' s Tail branches, and took off, and then in ventilated place dry, stay Burro's Tail dry branches, insert branches in the soil, put all the Burro' s Tail cutting good branches, put the cuttings of flowerpot in ventilated place, keep soil moisture, appropriate without how long it will take root.

Burro's Tail Propagation Through Division

For burro's tail propagation through division, we can cut off the small plants (or the upper branches of long plants) around the plants with a sharp knife in the plant growing season, dry them for a week, plant them in the tidal soil, and water them normally after a week.

Burro's Tail Propagation Through Seeds

Burro's tail propagation through seeds can be sown in the growing season (autumn is the best, followed by spring). The sowing temperature is generally controlled at 18-23 degrees. A portion of peat + vermiculite + perlite can be used as the soil for sowing. After soaking with insecticidal and bactericidal water, the seeds are horizontally sown on the soil surface and covered with film (ventilated for 2 hours every day). Generally, they sprout in about a week. After the sprouting is neat, the film is removed, Then we're going to add light to burro's tail.

How Fast Does Burro's Tail Grow

Burro's Tail can reach a trailing length of up to four feet in six years, and the plant grows slowly and stably. Burro's Tail is very strong. Burro's Tail likes plenty of sunshine, but also can tolerate semi overcast environment. Of course, burro's Tail will grow better if it is given enough sunshine. When we cultivate burro's Tail, we should choose sandy loam with good drainage. When the soil in the basin has pimples, the soil is too hard, and the water quality is too wet, the leaves of burro's Tail are easier to fall off.
