A 5" potted Bunny Ear Cactus in our cream/white planter or cement planter.
The bunny ear cactus (Opuntia microdasys) is a popular houseplant that is not only attractive but is also low-maintenance. This cactus is easy to care for and thrives on neglect. The most important factor in keeping the bunny ear cactus happy and thriving is ensuring that it has enough sunlight and does not get overwatered.
How to care for your new Bunny Ear cacti:
SUNLIGHT: The bunny ear cactus requires consistent bright, direct sunlight and when grown as a houseplant, it should be placed in the sunniest spot in your home. Ideally, this cactus should receive between six to eight hours of direct sunlight each day. When grown indoors, this usually means that it should be placed in a south or west-facing window, or you can use a grow light to provide supplemental light.
WATER: This desert dweller is drought-tolerant and does not require frequent watering in order to survive. Allow the soil to dry out thoroughly between watering, and when in doubt, wait a bit longer before you water again. Remember that in the desert, cacti can survive weeks, sometimes even months, without water.
HUMIDITY/TEMPERATURE: The bunny ear cactus requires warm, dry conditions and does not tolerate frost or excess humidity.
