Bunny Succulents Are The Adorable Houseplant With 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.

How to grow bunny succulents

Bunny succulents are pretty easy to grow. They enjoy a winter growing season with lots of watering followed by dry, dormant summers. In the summer, you should water them infrequently. But from September to March, they enjoy more water. The soil should be sandy, preferably a succulent garden soil. It should drain well.

Bunny succulents don’t care for direct sun, preferring partial shade to being beamed by the summer sun all day. They’re also considered hardy, tolerating slightly below freezing temperatures.

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.

They look like miniature bunny ears- only in plant form.

They start out so tiny…
