Bunny Ear Cactus, also known as Opuntia, belongs to a genus of desert cacti that has been able to survive where others would simply die. The appearance of Opuntia, which forms bizarre thickets and figures, is almost inseparable from Mexican landscapes.
This variety is a medium-growing cactus. It grows as a bush. The stem has an oval, flattened shape. This cactus is famous for the particular segmentation of its stems. The plant is strongly branched and grows up to 50 cm in height.
The very dense plant skin protects the juicy flesh of the shoots. Old stems gradually become woody, with a light brown crust on them.
