Monstrose Bunny Ear Cactus


This undulated version of the Bunny Ears Cactus (official name Opuntia microdasys monstrose) originate from Northern Mexico, they are very easy to care for and make great first plants.  They have an unusual appearance with thick pads covered with minute golden spines known as glochids (can cause irritation to the skin and eyes), so take care when handling your cactus.

Plant Care Tips:

  • Watering: Water deeply about once a month when the soil is dry, let the pot drain thoroughly. Avoid soggy soil which can cause the cactus to rot, avoid overwatering to prevent root rot. Does not require watering during the Winter
  • Light: Loves indirect sunlight, prefers a sunny spot on south facing windowsill
