Caz, an Opuntia Microdasys Cactus or Bunny Ear Cactus, hardly needs any introduction, after all, it looks like a bunny!
Native to Mexico, Caz is covered in tiny glochids (tiny hair-like 'spines'), that detach in large numbers with the slightest of touches.
Believe it or not, if Caz is happy she will display lemon-yellow flowers that are closely followed by red fruits!
Caz, Opuntia Microdasys
Caz prefers bright light and once established will even tolerate direct sun.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
