Care and Propagation Information
General Care for Sedum morganianum ‘Burrito’
Sedum morganianum ‘Burrito’ is the perfect addition to your indoor or outdoor succulent garden. It requires plenty of sunlight, but does not like extreme heat.
‘Burrito’ has typical watering needs for a succulent. It’s best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.
Be careful not to over-water! Missing a watering or two will not harm this succulent, as it is fairly resilient.
Where to Plant
Sedum morganianum ‘Burrito’ can be planted inside in an area that receives a lot of light, like a sunny window or sun room.
Outdoors, plant it in a container or area of your garden that receives plenty of early-morning and mid-day light.

How to Propagate Sedum morganianum ‘Burrito’
Sedum morganianum ‘Burrito’ can be propagated from leaves or cuttings.
‘Burrito’ propagates extremely well from leaves.
When taking a leaf for propagation, gently twist the leaf from the stem. Be sure that the leaf you get is a “clean pull,” where no part of the leaf is left on the stem. This will give you a better chance of a successful propagation.
It is not uncommon for Sedum morganianum ‘Burrito’ to “drop leaves.” (Although this is not to be confused with signs of over-watering) You can collect the dropped leaves and propagate them as well!
Allow the leaf to callous over for a day or two before placing it on well-draining soil.
To grow ‘Burrito’ from cuttings, use a sterile, sharp knife or pair of scissors. Remove a stem from the main plant, and allow it to callous for several days before placing on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried out completely.
Commonly Mistaken for
Sedum morganianum. Traditional Sedum morganianum has pointed leaves, where ‘Burrito’ has more rounded leaves.
