PANDA - Kalanchoe

Panda Kalanchoes are easy to grow succulents that are most noted for their unusual foliage. Their fuzzy, plump, brown-edged leaves  remind us of panda feet. They will occasionally bear tiny white or pink flowers. The Panda Kalanchoe will generally stay fairly small but can grow to 2 feet. It bears 2 - 3 inch fleshy leaves that are covered with tiny white hairs except for the edge of the leaf which is covered in tiny brown hairs.

LIGHT: They like bright direct sunlight however will tolerate artificial light if available at least 12 hours a day.

WATER: You'll need to let the soil get dry between waterings. Water thoroughly but do not let plant stand in excess water. One of the biggest problems with this type of plant is overwatering.

TEMPERATURE: Ideal temperatures are between 55 - 70 degrees.

Pandas are generally pest free. They can be propagated by leaves or by stem cuttings any time of the year.

Panda Kalanchoes are often available in 4" or 6" pots.
