Learn More About Bunny Ears Cactus

Collapsible content

What is the Bunny Ears Cactus Known For?

The Bunny Ears Cactus is most renowned for its distinctive pad-like stems that resemble rabbit ears, which are dotted with clusters of tiny spines called glochids. This cactus is favoured for its unique shape, easy care, and as a striking conversation piece in a succulent collection.

What Is the History of the Bunny Ears Cactus?

Native to northern Mexico and desert regions stretching into Arizona, the Bunny Ears Cactus, or Opuntia Microdasys Albata, has a rich background in native cultures. Traditionally, various parts of the cactus have been utilized, from creating cactus pads for food to using the glochids for their tiny, hair-like thorns in traditional medicine.

Where Does the Bunny Ears Cactus Originate?

The Bunny Ears Cactus is indigenous to the deserts of Mexico and the southwestern United States. Adapted to arid climates, its origin in these hot, dry regions has equipped it with the ability to store water and thrive in environments with minimal rainfall.

How Do You Care for a Bunny Ears Cactus?

Caring for Bunny Ears Cactus requires a bright, sunny spot with some direct sunlight each day. Use a cactus or succulent potting mix to ensure good drainage, and water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings. During the winter months, reduce watering further. It's hardy and requires minimal fuss, making it perfect for beginner gardeners.

Are Bunny Ears Cactus Toxic to Pets?

No, the Bunny Ears Cactus is not entirely safe for pets. While not toxic, its tiny glochids can easily detach and become lodged in the skin, causing irritation and discomfort. It’s best to keep this plant out of reach of curious pets to prevent any accidental injuries.

    The plants were good quality and packaged well, though the soil did come out of one pots a bit. It states if you order later on Thursday, which I did, the plants would be dispatched on the Monday. Mine arrived on the Monday, which I was not expecting so that means the plants must have been with the delivery company over the weekend. Luckily no damage done.

    Order came well packaged (only complaint being too much plastic packaging) and as advertised, and was delivered in time. The plants were healthy and guess it’s now up to me to ensure they continue to remain so!!!! A little more detail in the website on each plant, it’s seasonal changes etc, would be good especially for amateur gardeners like me!
