If you have taken a science class, you surely know that plants need water and sunlight to live, which enable photosynthesis and osmosis. However, there are some plants that don’t need constant care and a constant supply of water, so if you’re worried that all your flowers will wilt quickly, why not consider succulents?
Succulents are plants that not only look beautiful but also do well in dry climates and with little water, all because they store water in their leaves. Some succulents look like regular flowers, while others can even resemble animals! How is this possible? Here is a variety of plant whose leaves look like cute bunnies – beware, the sight of them might make you want to have one in your home immediately!
Succulents That Look like Rabbits
At first, tiny succulents look very inconspicuous and look like any small, green plant. Only with time, when it reaches its size (this succulent can grow up to 7.5 inches tall!) they resemble cute bunnies! This is all due to the “ears” or green leaves of the plant.

Its official name is Monilaria obconica, but the plant can easily be referred to as a “succulent-rabbit”. The plant is native to the southern regions of Africa, or lots of sun, small amounts of water, and high air flow. Some, when grown outdoors, can survive mild winters.
How to Plant a Succulent – Rabbit?
First of all, you need to prepare the substrate – mix in equal parts a mixture of sand and soil for the garden. Then moisten it with water and place it in a pot with drainage holes. Spread them out, leaving about 2 inch from the top of the pot. Sprinkle the seeds on the soil and then cover with a thin layer of fine sand and crushed pebbles.
Care of Succulent Rabbitbrush
Fill a spray bottle and spray the soil with water. Try to keep the soil moist throughout the germination period. Cover the pot with plastic wrap to help retain moisture in the soil. Then place the pot in a warm, sunny location. The best temperature for the plant is between 59°F and 77°F. If necessary, place a heating mat under the pot. The seeds should germinate in 10 to 15 days.
