The Bunny Ear-Cinnamon Cactus, scientifically known as Opuntia microdasys 'Cinnamon', is a variety of the Bunny Ear Cactus known for its unique cinnamon-colored spines. This cactus is native to Mexico and is popular in cultivation for its distinctive appearance and ease of care.

This plant typically grows to about 1 to 2 feet in height and spreads 2 to 3 feet wide. The Bunny Ear-Cinnamon Cactus is characterized by its pad-like stems, which resemble the shape of rabbit ears. The pads are green and can produce new pads as the plant grows, creating a dense, shrubby appearance.

One of the most striking features of this cactus variety is its spines. Unlike the traditional Bunny Ear Cactus, which has white or yellow glochids (small, barbed spines), the 'Cinnamon' variety has spines that are a reddish-brown or cinnamon color, giving it a unique and decorative look.

The Bunny Ear-Cinnamon Cactus blooms with yellow or orange flowers, typically in late spring or early summer. However, flowering is not common in cultivation, especially in indoor settings.

This cactus prefers full sun to partial shade and thrives in well-draining soil. It is drought-tolerant and requires minimal watering, making it a great choice for xeriscaping, rock gardens, and as a container plant. Care should be taken when handling this cactus, as the glochids can detach easily and are irritating to the skin.

Overall, the Bunny Ear-Cinnamon Cactus is a low-maintenance and visually appealing plant, perfect for adding a touch of whimsy and color to any garden or indoor plant collection. Its unique cinnamon-colored spines and easy-care nature make it a favorite among cactus enthusiasts and gardeners looking for an attractive and drought-tolerant plant.
