Kalanchoe tomentosa, aka Chocolate Soldier Plant or Panda Plant, is a gorgeous, velvety-leaved succulent with blue-green foliage rimmed in chocolate brown. Native to Madagascar, these beauties belong to the Crassulaceae family and they don’t require the sunlight that most succulents typically do. With a vertical growth habit, they thrive indoors and make the cutest houseplants.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

If you notice your plant getting leggy, or producing stretched-out growth, this is often an indication that it needs brighter light. They are also relatively slow-growing, so they won’t need much maintenance in the long run and do just fine being left alone the majority of the time.

Care Guide

How to take care of Kalanchoe Chocolate Soldier

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. This can take up to 4 weeks in an average home environment but it will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions. For them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. wrinkly or soft leaves). Water a little more often in the warmer months.

Their humidity requirement is low, so do not mist them or put them in a terrarium.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.
