Kalanchoe tomentosa 'Teddy Bear'

 

Kalanchoe Tomentosa 'Teddy Bear'

Kalanchoe tomentosa 'Teddy Bear' is a shrub-like succulent plant with short leaves that are densely covered in brownish felt. It is a kalanchoe, and therefore originates in Madagascar. Its flowers are small, furry, and bell-shaped. Teddy Bear prefers a porous soil with adequate drainage. Protect from frost and provide bright light. It is hardy to 36°F, and can grow to 10" tall or above. Water thoroughly when the soil is dry. Tomentosa is a popular houseplant with dark-red rimmed, velvety foliage. The kalanchoe tomentosa grows up to approximately 45cm with a thick stem that produces branches and many groups of leaves, once it matures. It is easy to care for.

Flowering

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Although this plant can flower within it's natural habitat - it's rare to see flowers bloom indoors, so it's grown for primarily it's foliage within homes. If your lucky enough to get it to flower, then you will see lovely small tubular shaped flowers bloom at the tips of the branches.

 

Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Use a cacti and succulent potting mix, or your own mix which drains easily (part sand). The panda plant is a slow grower which will only need re-potting once every 2 years and then less once it matures.

 

Propogation by cuttings

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Leaf cuttings can be taken and planted in new soil during spring. Give the leaf cutting a week of drying out before re-potting, then you can expect them to begin rooting within 4 weeks.
