My Bunny Ears succulents are still very young, so my review is on the cautious side because of my limited experience and feeling like I was flying blind for some of the time.

Out of 20 seeds, five sprouted in April of 2020, so I’ve only had them for one season. At the end of summer 2020, the bunny ears begin to dry up and die back, like the one in the picture on the right. I removed the dried up ears. Not knowing if the plants had themselves died I pretty much stopped watering and put them about 3-4 feet away from a west facing window. It got some bright light in the afternoon. Perhaps once a month, I’d give it a tiny bit of water. Towards the end of winter they started growing leaves again!

However, these plants are actually winter growers, but because they sprouted in the spring it will take them a few seasons to normalize. I’ll adjust its care when it becomes dormant and when it wakes up.

YouTube has some instructional videos about their care. I learned they are very thirsty when producing new growth so I watered them before they became totally dry but was still cautious to avoid root rot setting in. They are in a very fast draining soil mix with some organic materials.
