Kalanchoe 'Chocolate Soldier'

Size

Densely fuzzy, spoon-shaped leaves characterize the charming Kalanchoe ‘Chocolate Soldier,’ whose name is drawn from the rich brown coloration of its leaf margins. Reaching a height of up to 12 inches when grown indoors, this largely vertical specimen will form numerous stems full of felted leaves, which can include base colors in a range of hues from olive green to rust. An exceptional variety for beginners, ‘Chocolate Soldier’ will thrive with minimal care, adding an interesting textural component to any space.

Native to Madagascar, ‘Chocolate Soldier’ prefers bright yet filtered light, though morning shade is acceptable. Like most succulents, it cannot tolerate excess moisture around its roots or leaves – as such, be sure to provide a porous soil mixture within a well-draining pot, ensure ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface, and employ a thorough but infrequent watering routine.

Hardy only to Zone 10, take steps to shield ‘Chocolate Soldier’s fuzzy yet fleshy leaves from frost – and in the warmer days of spring, expect to see maroon blooms coated in the same velvety layer as the remainder of the plant!
