About Panda Plant
Plants in the Kalanchoe genus are native to Madagascar and tropical Africa. They range from rubbery green leaves, to leopard print, and some are even fuzzy! The word Kalanchoe comes from the Cantonese name for these plants, pronounced Ka-lun-koh-ee in English. Their succulent leaves help store water during droughts, so they'll be just fine if you skip a watering or two (it happens!).

Panda Plant does not tolerate low-light 🚫.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Panda Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.

I love this plant. It is extremely forgiving and easy to grow. I recommend this for beginners and people getting into the succulent community. The really easy to propagate, and grow fast in the right care. I have not found mine to attract Pests. They are an attractive plant with soft fuzzy leaves. And you can find them almost anywhere. They do need Direct light or bright indirect light. A great rewarding plant I recommend for any plant parent.
