General Care for Echeveria ‘Chroma'
Echeveria ‘Chroma' is a shrubby, clumping succulent. It is perfect for succulent arrangements, planters, and rock gardens. Its flowers can attract hummingbirds.
Echeveria ‘Chroma' has typical watering needs for a succulent. It's best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.
Where to Plant
‘Chroma' is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 30° F (-1.1° C), it's best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors under a growl ight. It does well in full to partial sun.
Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day.
How to Propagate Echeveria ‘Chroma'
Echeveria ‘Chroma' can be propagated from cuttings, leaves, and offsets.
To grow ‘Chroma' from cuttings, use a sterile, sharp knife or pair of scissors. Remove a stem from the main plant, and allow it to callous for several days before placing on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried out completely.
To propagate ‘Chroma' from leaves, twist a leaf from the mother plant. Be sure that none of the leaf remains on the stem, or you will have a smaller chance of success.
Allow the leaf to dry out for several days so that the end callouses over, and then place on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil is completely dry.
Echeveria ‘Chroma' will produce small offsets, sprouting up around the base of the plant. Simply pull these up and allow the offsets to dry for one to two days before replanting.
