Are you in search for a beautiful plant to add to your Garden? More specifically, are you curious in finding cute and unusual plants that really stand out? Look, no further, because Earthwonders will show you some unique plants to make your indoor and outdoor garden look incredibly cute.
These adorable plants are native to South Africa. The scientific name for this plant is Monilaria moniliformis, but in the early growth stages, the plant sprouts look like tiny green bunny ears — hence, the nickname. As the plant matures and grows, the “bunny ears” begin to droop down and eventually sprout white blossoms with yellow centers. These plants are easy to maintain and really liven up any surrounding space they are placed in. They just might end up being the cutest plants in your entire collection. It’s even more amazing that their bunny ears have fuzzies on them too.
It’s no surprise that these too-cute plants have taken the internet by storm, especially in Japan! The Japanese certainly love their “kawaii,” or cute items, so the little rabbit succulents quickly achieved a viral status. While these plants are rare, you can find seeds on Amazon.

#1 These tiny little succulents are known as Monilaria Moniliformis or Monilaria Obconica.
#2 Interestingly, their bunny ears equally have fuzzies on them and sure make them extremely cute.
#3 Quite popular in Japan, they are now sold online at Amazon.
#4 Naturally, they grow up to 8 inches tall and even have white flowers bloom with a yellow color in the middle.
#5 You might just end up mistaking this for a candy-like cactus as they resemble small glowing pods in the soil.
#6 As compared to when they are a little tiny, the bunny succulents appear adorable and funky when they are bigger.
#7 However, as they grow, their bunny ears get longer so they start resembling rabbits a little less.
#8 They grow better when the weather is cold and that’s, however, the best time to plant them.
Have you ever found the usual bananas in your grocery store to be a little, well, bland? You’re not the only one. Banana lovers in last years have begun flocking to richer alternatives like the Blue Java banana which is grown in many parts of Asia, Australia and Hawaii. The unripe fruit takes on a greenish-silver-blue hue due to its wax coating, hence the name. Its white flesh contains black seeds, which isn’t exactly common for a dessert banana.
It’s also widely known as the “Ice Cream” banana for its sweet and soft flesh, which bears a similarity in taste to vanilla custard or ice cream. Not only do these blue bananas taste like vanilla ice cream but they also contain a lot of nutrients making them a very healthy and nutritious snack. You can eat the ripe banana raw. Others suggest mixing it into a smoothie with peanut butter or doing the old trick of freezing and blending the bananas to make an all-natural ice-cream.
Options for acquiring the Blue Java outside of Asia and the South Pacific are limited. You can purchase the banana in bulk from this Florida-based company. For our friends in Hawaii: Several local growers cultivate the Ice Cream banana, so scout out farmers’ markets on the big island and Oahu. But if you don’t want to spend a fortune shipping bananas or traveling to Hawaii, you can always try purchasing a tree and planting one in your own backyard or even indoors. Unlike other bananas, Blue Java can even survive colder climates.
Hence, check out the gallery below and let us know if you find them tasty!
