Bunny Air Cactus Fun Facts
- The Bunny cacti are native to northern Mexico and desert regions stretching into Arizona.
- The spines come off with a simple touch and are best removed from the flesh with tweezers as they can cause skin irritations.
- Other common names include bunny cactus, angel wings, polka dot cactus.
- These cacti do not develop spines. Instead, they have what’s called glochids which are hair-like and soft to touch. However, can still be harmful.
- The bunny ears cactus is originally red and turns green as it matures. The prickly “fur” can be white, or yellow depending on the variety.
- The flowers only bloom on rare occasions. But we can have them anytime as we crochet them!
