GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Opuntia microdasys, also known as the bunny ear cactus or angel’s wings, is a small cousin of the more commonly known prickly pear cactus.
  • Though it isn’t known for its culinary uses, it’s a popular houseplant due to its easy care and cute appearance.
  • The pads of this cactus can resemble bunny ears and the glochids look like fur, hence the common name.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • All cacti need well-draining soil.
  • A good starting ratio for the mix's components is one-third compost, one-third horticultural-grade sand, and one-third grit.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • During the growing season, a balanced fertilizer, which has been diluted to 1/4 strength, can be added to the water for each watering.
  • A balanced fertilizer is one that has roughly equal proportions of Nitrogen, Phosphorous, and Potassium.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Most cacti like bright light, but not all can tolerate intense, direct sunlight, especially in conjunction with high temperatures.
  • A plant that is grown in optimal light conditions will "look normal" (unstressed), and is more likely to flower than one grown in sub-optimal lighting conditions.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • While growing, cacti should be watered at least once a week.
  • During each watering, give the soil a good soaking, so that water runs out of the 'drainage holes' of the pots.
