The Bunny Ear Cactus is a popular succulent that belongs to the Opuntia genus and is native to Mexico. The plant is named for its distinctive flattened, pad-shaped stems that resemble bunny ears. The stems are covered in soft, white spines that are harmless to the touch and give the plant a unique, fuzzy appearance. The Bunny Ear Cactus produces bright yellow flowers in the spring and summer that are followed by edible red fruit. The plant is easy to care for and can be grown indoors or outdoors in a sunny, well-draining location. It prefers dry soil and can tolerate periods of drought.

  • Botanical Name: Opuntia microdasys
  • Common Names: Bunny Ear Cactus, Angel’s Wings, Polka-Dot Cactus, Bunny Cactus

Here are some key points to consider when caring for Opuntia microdasys:

  1. Light: Bunny Ear Cactus thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. Place it near a south- or west-facing window where it can receive several hours of sunlight each day. While it enjoys ample light, protect it from direct sunlight, especially during the hottest part of the day, as intense sunlight can scorch its pads.
  2. Temperature: Bunny Ear Cactus prefers warm temperatures typical of its native desert habitats. It can tolerate temperatures as low as 50°F (10°C) but thrives in temperatures between 70°F to 100°F (21°C to 38°C) during the growing season. Protect it from cold drafts and frost, as prolonged exposure to cold temperatures can damage or kill the plant.
  3. Watering: Like most cacti, Opuntia microdasys is drought-tolerant and prefers infrequent watering. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings, then thoroughly water the plant until excess water drains out of the bottom of the pot. During the winter months or periods of dormancy, reduce watering to prevent root rot.
  4. Soil: Use a well-draining cactus or succulent potting mix for Bunny Ear Cactus. A mixture of potting soil, sand, and perlite or pumice works well to provide adequate drainage and prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.
  5. Potting: Plant Bunny Ear Cactus in a pot with drainage holes to prevent water from accumulating around the roots. Choose a pot that is slightly larger than the plant’s root ball to allow for growth. Repotting is typically done every 2 to 3 years or when the plant outgrows its container.
  6. Fertilizing: Feed Bunny Ear Cactus sparingly during the growing season with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer formulated for cacti and succulents. Apply the fertilizer at half-strength every 4 to 6 weeks to avoid overfertilizing, which can cause damage to the plant.
  7. Propagation: Bunny Ear Cactus can be propagated easily from stem cuttings. Allow the cuttings to callus for a few days, then plant them in a well-draining potting mix. Keep the soil lightly moist until roots develop, then gradually transition to the plant’s regular care routine.
  8. Pruning: Prune Bunny Ear Cactus sparingly to remove any damaged, diseased, or dead pads. Use clean, sharp scissors or pruning shears to make clean cuts, and allow the cut ends to callus before replanting or propagating the pads.
  9. Pests and Diseases: Bunny Ear Cactus is generally resistant to pests and diseases, but it can occasionally be affected by common succulent pests such as mealybugs, scale insects, and spider mites. Inspect the plant regularly for signs of pests, and treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
  10. Handling: Be cautious when handling Bunny Ear Cactus, as its pads are covered in tiny glochids, which are small, barbed spines that can cause irritation or injury if they come into contact with the skin. Wear gloves or use tongs when handling the plant to avoid getting pricked by the glochids.

By providing proper light, water, and soil conditions, as well as protection from cold temperatures and pests, you can enjoy the unique beauty of Bunny Ear Cactus in your home or garden for years to come.
