@savannahssucculentgarden is this just a juvenile version of my larger plant? Colors are identical, but the leaves are so narrow! #succulent-id-help

Looks like you have been getting the leaves wet. Careful not to wet the leaves when watering. I found out the hard way.

Thanks! I’ll start butt chugging this to protect it better.

To retry sure this is a variant of the #pandaplant it’s #chocolatesoldier I think?? Can someone validate? Little brown dots on the leaves. Love it, so #fuzzy! 💚💚💚

Is it just the lighting or are some of the markings almost black? If not, and they're all brown, then I would say 'Chocolate Soldier'. If some of those markings look black to you, it might be worth looking at Kalanchoe tomentosa 'Black Tie'.

@savannahssucculentgarden that’s what’s baffling. I can ask the original owner. #newgrowth is reddish rust, spotty tips are super dark, but I’m almost sure it’s brown. Thanks for telling me, I have yet another (different grower) that has different shaped leaves. I’ll need ID help on it for certain!🙏🏼💚🙏🏼💚

Keep in mind, young leaves do start out reddish brown on 'Black Tie', and the markings grow darker as growth ages. 👍

@savannahssucculentgarden I think it’s worth a call to the original owner. They’re moving rn, so I’ll wait. You’d love everything she gave me. Most of my mature succs & cacti came from her. Just humbling to have them.
