People have been planting succulents indoors for years. But the trend really took off during the pandemic when everyone wanted to add some greenery to their space. Over the last few months we’ve seen succulent-related trends: a raindrop succulent, a heart-shaped succulent planter, and this adorable Dirt Pudding Cups recipe with sugar succulents.
Now there’s an adorable plant that’s trending this spring: bunny succulents! That’s why it’s the cutest Easter decoration.
What is a Bunny Succulent?
Bunny ear succulents – also known as Monilaria obconica or Monilaria moniliformis – are known for their resemblance to a tiny bunny head with fluffy green “ears.”
As cute as they look in infancy, it’s important to know that ears don’t stay that way forever. Over time, the juicy ears become long and tall. They’ll look more like green beans growing out of a tiny head than bunny ears. But it’s definitely worth it. With a little care, these ears will eventually bloom into spectacular rose petals. Remember that bunny succulents are summer dormant, meaning they hibernate and don’t grow again until the winter months.
Speaking of growing: even green thumbs will love this flower bulb of the month.
