Kalanchoe marmorata tiger, also known as the Penwiper Plant, is a striking and unique houseplant that belongs to the Crassulaceae family. The plant is native to Madagascar, growing as an evergreen shrub in rocky terrain. The plant's small leaves result from its adaptation to the dry and rocky conditions in which it grows in the wild.
In the wild, Kalanchoe marmorata tiger is a small shrub that grows up to 3 feet tall and has small, thick, and waxy green leaves with dark maroon spots, giving it the appearance of a tiger's skin. The plant produces clusters of small, star-shaped, pink or white flowers on long stems in the summer months.
Kalanchoe marmorata tiger is a beautiful houseplant because of its unique foliage. The small leaves are thick and waxy. Their dark maroon spots create a dramatic contrast against the green background, making it an eye-catching addition to any indoor space.

To thrive they need good light and only the very occasional watering, these plants like to be kept dry, treat it like a cactus and you won't go far wrong. Keep it where it is bright, sunny, warm and airy but protect from the mid-day sun. During the winter, keep them dry with only occasional watering. The leaves become pink and red with the cool nights of winter.
