I know there were a couple of people that were interested on what the blooming flowers look like on a kalanchoe chocolate soldier. Here is one of the stalks with open flowers. Cute little flowers #kalanchoe #chocolatesoldier #mygardentodayts #sunshinestate #treasurecoast

@Yollymac, I just took this of mine and compared it to yours and I don’t see a difference other than size and yours doesn’t have dog hair on it 😂

I agree with you, you can really see the brown tones come through in this one! All good. 😁

Hi Tracy! This is a lovely Kalanchoe Tomentosa, but it’s not Chocolate Soldier as it’s brown and not blue. 😊

That’s what the tag said but it was from a big box store. Thanks. I need to figure out what it is.

@Yollymac, I just googled kalanchoe chocolate soldier and there are a bunch of images that look just like my plant. I also have a tomentosa and it’s more blue and brown (previous photo).

That’s because a bunch of people also named it wrong as is often the case on google/Pinterest/instagram. I will tag you in mine so you can see what they actually look like.
