The long leaves of the Kalanchoe tomentosa ‘Panda Plant’ have a lush, velvety texture, and are characterized by dusty green centers with dots of rich brown around the margins. Despite its unique and even exotic appearance – which comes as no surprise, given its origins in Madagascar – this succulent variety does exceptionally well indoors, and is an excellent choice for beginners. Growing up to 2 feet tall and wide, ‘Panda Plant’ can easily hold its own in your succulent collection, and can even boast fuzzy, bell shaped flowers in the summer months.
Able to tolerate a mixture of bright and indirect light, with even a bit of afternoon shade thrown in, this variety can thrive in nearly any home. Like most succulents, it prefers porous soil and a well-draining pot, along with plenty of airflow to ensure that moisture does not remain on the leaves or stems for long. Watering ‘Panda Plant’ is very simple, as it only requires a thorough watering once the soil has thoroughly dried from the last one. While this hardy variety can endure some neglect, the one thing it absolutely cannot tolerate is frost – so be sure to bring it indoors during the cooler winter months.
While the furry-looking ‘Panda Plant’ can be very appealing to young children, it is important to keep it well out of their reach, as its leaves are mildly toxic if ingested.
