Description

Kalanchoe Tomentosa is native to Madagascar and known as Cat Ear or Panda plant. It has lovely leaves that are soft or furry in texture, primarily silver-green. The hair on the tip is a rich chocolate color, so it is also often called Chocolate Soldier.

Hairy kalanchoes often grow up to two feet in controlled environments like indoor gardens as drought-resistant succulents. It thrives when it has access to direct light, Panda Plant loves bright light, and 6 hours of sunlight a day is a good choice. It is also essential to provide it with good ventilation. Sometimes they also need shade to keep them from getting burned by the excessive sun.

As a drought-tolerant succulent, the panda plant doesn't require a lot of water, so you don't have to water it as often, usually only once a week in mild hot weather and biweekly in colder months. You can wait for the soil to dry before watering, being careful not to leave water in the bottom tray.

Because panda plants are prone to root rot, we recommend using a cactus and succulent potting mix, or other well-drained soil will do. Mix perlite with standard soil and furry panda plants thrive in this environment. If you are uncomfortable making your own, you can buy these materials in our store.

    Shipping

    We pack all shipments by hand. 

    We have many years of experience shipping live succulents and cactus plants. We pay close attention to packing and have developed an expert shipping method. All succulents are packed and protected with polypropylene cotton (this is a stuffing used for dolls). We find this is the most effective material for protecting live plants while in transit. It is important to us that you are able to Keep going and Keep growing without any stress about the quality of the product or packaging.

    Shipping Speed

    In general, it takes 3 to 10 days for plants to arrive after you place your order. All orders will be shipped out 48 hours after you place them. We ship the orders on work days(from Monday to Saturday) and all year round. In normal conditions, it will take 3-10 days for you to receive the package. Estimated shipping times are offered as needed.

    HOLIDAYS: During weeks in which a holiday occurs - Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, etc. - shipping may be delayed until the following week.

    EXTREME WEATHER NOTICE: The Next Gardener reserves the right to hold shipments during storms or periods of extreme heat or cold. This is to ensure your plant does not suffer while it is in transit.

    Winter shipping

    We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

    Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

    Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

    Unfortunately, shipping is not available to Alaska, Puerto Rico, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. The transit time is too long, and the plants would be dead on arrival.

    Due to numerous factors beyond our control, free shipping to Hawaii is not an option. And, we can no longer guarantee orders going to Hawaii that get delayed by more than 4 in-transit days.  The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. Thank you for your understanding.

    Sorry. No International Shipping for now!!!
