If you’re looking for a way to spruce up your home for spring, there’s no better way to do it than by adding some fresh greenery. In fact, I’ve got just the plant for you! Meet: Monilaria obconica. This little succulent looks like a bunny rabbit with two long ears, and it’s just the kind of thing you need come Easter season.
These little guys started going viral online, and timing is perfect for obvious reasons. What better plant could there be to show that spring has sprung than one with the cutest little bunny ears?! When these first start to sprout, they look like baby bunnies with two tiny ears. As they begin to grow, the “ears” get longer and longer. But, once you see the “bunny rabbit” in these, it’s hard to un-see, no matter how long those ears get!

These adorable green things started gaining popularity recently after Twitter user @celely1128 posted a couple photos of them. The post has gotten over 30,000 likes and 42,000 retweets at time of writing, and for good reason! These potted plants couldn’t be more charming!
The plants are from South Africa and are relatively easy to care for. They’ll go dormant in the summer and usually grow from September to March, so the sooner you get your hands on one, the better!
You can expect them to flower (how pretty!), and they need good drainage and regular watering, especially during their growing season. Try to keep them out of direct sunlight too.
You can find seeds online for as little as $5.99 on Amazon. If you start with seeds, you may have to wait until next Easter to have full-grown little bunnies, but we think they’ll be worth the wait.
Martha Stewart recommends using them as a centerpiece for your Easter table decor, but I say, the more you have around your house, the better. Get ready to plant cute bunnies all over the place!
