Kalanchoe tomentosa

Chocolate Soldier

A cultivar of the Panda plant, this hard to pronounce (kal-an-ko-ee) succulent is perfect for beginners. Also great as a gift for succulent lovers, or for collectors looking for something unusual.

An unusual looking thing, with its fibrous hairs giving it a frosted appearance complimented by striking red and brown highlights.

With time, the stem will become wooded and if you're very lucky, it will produce tubular flowers at the base of the tips. 

Native to Madagascar, these are a brilliant succulent that will thrive will very little care for years.
