Opuntia Microdasys, aka the Bunny Ear Cactus, is the coolest cactus around. Available in a range of our stylish metallic dipped pots, this houseplant will add some serious style to your home.



The bunny ear cactus is a thing of beauty. Originating from Mexico, super easy to care for and bang on-trend. Just don’t over water him, he prefers arid conditions, preferably a sunny, dry spot. If you are looking for a plant to update your desk or add some style to your window sill, then this is the plant for you.

Please note: the ears on the Cactus are very fragile and some may be lost during transit, rest assured, this will not affect the growth of the plant and they will grow back.

Plant Care

Water lightly every 3-4 weeks and make sure the excess water drains. Our top tip; once it’s watered, tip the pot upside down in the sink to let the water drain off. Likes a dry sunny spot in your home or office. 

Yes, they spikey, be careful not to get pricked! Small Cactus burrs can become loose in transit, so take extra care when unpacking this plant. We recommend using thick gloves or folded up paper if you need to handle the plants. If your skin does come in to contact with the burrs, wash with mild soap and water immediately. Any visible spines can be removed with tweezers and sellotape.

Please note; the shape and size of the Cactus may vary.

    Arrived well packaged and healthy. The black and gold ceramic pot is lovely and it shows off my cute bunny ear cactus beautifully. I am so in love with my Little Botanical purchased. Thank you.

    Mine arrived well packaged and looked lovely from the packaging. Unfortunately my Hubby with his heavy hands broke one of the Bunny ears in half getting it out of the wrapping – gutted!!! 🙁
    Hoping it will survive – or hubby’s in the dog house. Bunny ears looked so cute and was going to be given prime spot, as it is very healthy and the pot looks fab too! Recommend buying.

    Th bunny ear cactus seems to be thriving in our bathroom where it is nice and bright. It arrived with one small ear, but now has two new baby ones growing very quickly.
    Be careful of the very fine prickles!
    Black and gold pot looks awesome!

    It’s a lovely plant, mine was a bit different to the picture, it came with stones on the top. Packaged amazingly well, very impressed!

I’m a low maintenance cactus with gorgeous big stems which look a bit like bunny ears. What’s not to love?!
