Echeveria 'Chroma" Care
The echeveria 'chroma' needs at least 6 hours of sunlight every single day in order to produce its beautiful colors and to avoid etiolation. Growing in direct sun is a must especially when growing echeverias. If you want this succulent to produce its bright colors, then it will need sunlight. This succulent isn't cold hardy, so frost and cold temperatures will most likely kill it. It's important to grow this succulent indoors during the winter if the weather gets under 30 degrees.
Fast/well draining succulent soil is a must when growing the echeveria chroma. Fast/well draining succulent soil will keep the soil dry preventing overwatering and then later on root rot. Root rot will occur if you don't use fast/well draining succulent soil and if the soil is overwatered. It's also best to grow this succulent in a succulent pot with a drainage hole. This is important because the excess water will drain out the bottom of the pot, preventing overwatering and root rot.
You should water your echeveria chroma 1-2 days a week or when the soil looks or feels very dry. Make sure to not overwater this succulent or root rot will occur. It's best to keep track of the last exact time you watered your echeveria chroma. If a watering issue does occur then you will know if it's under watered or overwatered.
Also make sure to not get water on the leaves of this succulent. This could cause fungus to grow on the leaves and eventually make the leaf fall of the plant and into the soil. This will attract succulents pests such as mealybugs.
Echeveria Chroma Propagation:
You can propagate the echeveria chroma by cuttings or leaves. It's very important to make sure that the leaves or cuttings form a callus before starting propagation. Without a callus then it's near impossible to propagate this succulent. Wait 2-4 days or until a callus forms. After a callus forms then plant the leaves or cuttings in fast/well draining succulent soil. Water 2-3 days a week and give it partial shade and partial sun.
