This is yet another of those reliable and easy to grow Kalanchoe - this one's called Pussy Ears or the Panda Plant, due to the fuzzy leaf surface. Its botanical name is Kalanchoe tomentosa, which means fuzzy.

These are easy to grow plants, requiring only bright light, and avoiding excess water.

The whole tribe of Kalanchoe are great plants for novice growers and add lots of texture to a collection of houseplants.

Other types to look for are Kalanchoe daigremontiana, Kalanchoe blossfeldiana and Kalanchoe delagoensis, which all have unique and interesting characteristics.
