Panda Plant

One of my House Plants that survived the February Artic Blast.
It was small enough to bring into the main part of the house during the time that the Solar Room dropped below 40 degrees.

“Kalanchoe tomentosa grows wild on the island of Madagascar. As an indoor plant, however, panda plant growth is limited by the size of the container, usually reaching only 1 to 2 feet in height and 2 feet around. Further information on growing Kalanchoe panda plants says the velvety appearance of the leaves is created by hairs that spring up in trichomes, deflecting light and limiting transpiration. Brownish red markings on leaf edges, along with the white-silvery hairs, are similar to the fur of a panda bear. Tomentosa means densely woolly or velvety.”
