People have been planting succulents indoors for years now. But the trend really picked up steam last year, when everyone was looking for a way to start gardening indoors. In the past couple months alone, we’ve seen this cool raindrop succulent and a succulent Christmas tree.

Now, there’s an adorable plant trending right in time for Easter: bunny ear succulents!

What Is a Bunny Ear Succulent?

The “bunny ear” succulents—also known as Monilaria obconica, if you want to get scientific—are known for their resemblance to a tiny bunny head with fuzzy green “ears.”

Just look at these adorable plants. Have you ever seen anything so cute?

As cute as they look in their infancy, it’s important to know that the ears won’t stay that way forever. Over time, the succulent ears will grow long and tall. They’ll look more like string beans growing from a tiny head than bunny ears. It’s totally worth it, though. With a little TLC, those ears will eventually bloom spectacular flowers.

Why Are People Obsessed with Succulents?

Succulents are an easy way to add some plants to your home, without a ton of hassle. In fact, succulents like these are super low-maintenance plants that are easy to care for and look beautiful wherever you display them. With the right amount of TLC, they can last for years.
