The ‘Bunny Succulent’: Adorable plant that looks like it has bunny ears


If you love weird and strange things as much as I do, especially anything related to plants, then these “bunny succulents” will knock your socks off!

The “Bunny Succulent ” or as it’s referred to in the scientific community, the monilaria moniliformis or monilaria obconica, is probably the most adorable plant you have ever seen.  Now usually, “adorable” and “cute” aren’t words you associate with plants, but after seeing these images, you’ll understand why that is the adjective of choice.

Apparently they’re rather easy to take care of, so even if you tend to kill every plant you touch, these should survive. They do require full sun to light shade, and will definitely add some character to your home or office.

Cactus-Art says : “It is relatively easy to grow. These plants grow on winter rain and head for summer dormancy. The growing season in northern hemisphere is from September to March. Water minimally in summer. Water regularly in winter after the new long green leaves appears at their extremities in autumn after the summer resting period. Requires good drainage. It enjoy some shade (avoid direct sun as it grows wild among rocks and under the shade of other plants) and in summer it need to be kept in a cool area. Hardy to -2°C. Ensure a very good ventilation. Avoid to repot frequently. This plant may stay in the same pot for many years. Plants grown in larger containers have frequently relatively poor flowers. It might improve when the plants are given their own, small individual pots. Be careful not to apply too much fertilizer.”

One thing I have learned about succulents and caring for them, is to never over-water them. Their roots tend to rot easily.

So, if you adore cute things that resemble bunnies, but you don’t want to take care of or clean up after a real bunny, these succulents are the perfect thing for you.

You can buy the Bunny Succulent seeds here at the Blue Fire store for $4.51. They’re also sold on Amazon.

They start out so tiny…

But they eventually turn into full-grown bunny ears.

Maybe it’s perspective…Do these look like Peace signs to you?

Nevermind…they’re totally bunnies.
