Bunny Ears Cactus


Opuntia microdasys - albata 'Bunny Ears'

The Opuntia Microdasys ‘Bunny Ears’ is a cactus that is native and endemic to central and northern Mexico. Other common names include ‘Angel’s Wings’, ‘Bunny Cactus’ and ‘Polka-Dot Cactus’. These cacti grow thick, segmented, succulent pads that are covered with glochids or short, bristly hairs. These glochids come off easily from the pads and can be easily blown away by the wind. These pads grow in pairs, giving them the appearance of bunny ears. Don’t be fooled by the cute name and appearance. These plants are not as cuddly as they seem. Take care not to prick yourself with the spines that are easily dislodged from the pads of this plant.
