- Description: 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.
