Bunny Ears Cactus (Opuntia microdasys) (SOLD)

For the Cactus-lover - W&N watercolour on Aqua 300gsm watercolour paper – 8″ × 12″ - unframed - (SOLD)

I'm an avid succulent and cactus collector and buy anything I can lay my hands on that's not in my collection yet and I was absolutely thrilled when I came upon this Bunny Ears cactus!

These cacti originated in the wild (North and Central Mexico) and are popular garden and house plants here in South Africa. I bought my Bunny Ears last summer and after a nice rest this past winter, is now showing lots of new ‘ears’. I’m just wondering if I will have any flowers while it is in a pot…
Opuntia microdasys forms a dense shrub 40–60 cm tall, occasionally more, composed of pad-like stems 6–15 cm long and 4–12 cm broad.

Opuntia microdasys has no spines, but instead has numerous white or yellow glochids 2–3 mm long in dense clusters; these detach very easily on being touched, and can cause considerable skin irritation, so the plants must be treated with caution. Despite this, it is a very popular cactus in cultivation.
