Kalanchoe tomentosa 'Chocolate Soldier'

Bringing sensory play into the houseplant realm, Kalanchoe 'Chocolate Soldier', has an interesting yet appeasing velvet touch.  As a small succulent, Mr. Chocolate Solider, can get up to two feet tall but is very slow growing and will be happy in smaller pots for a few years.  The color contrast coupled with the velvety feel makes this a fun desktop plant.  An extremely easy plant to care for that can be neglected for weeks; simply needing a bright locality and well-drained soil.  Toxic to dogs and cats if consumed so be careful with placement or avoid altogether.  Mildly toxic to humans if ingested so keep from toddlers.
