Kalanchoe tomentosa


The 'Panda Plant' remains as a relatively compact, sturdy, and hardy plant. The leaves are entirely covered with a dense white-silver felt of hairs. The leaf apex has several teeth, each marked brown in color. This suggests a plush fur, and with a little imagination, the color patterns are reminiscent of the Panda Bear.
