Echeveria 'Chazaroi'

http://www.crassulaceae.ch/de/artikel?akID=48&aaID=2&aiID=C&aID=1196 Series Racemosae Type : Kimnach 3327, Oaxaca, Dist. Juxtlahuaca, between 10 and 14 km SW of San Sebastián Tecomaxtlahuaca, ca 2100 m, Feb. 6, 1993. Etymology : Named for Miguel Cházaro. Distribution : Mexico (Oaxaca) First Description by Kimnach in Cactus and Succulent Journal US 67 (2): 81-85. 1995 : Plant entirely glabrous, usually single, nearly stemless. Rosette 4 - 7 cm tall, 6 - 8 cm wide, with 20 - 40 leaves. Stem to 3 cm tall or more, 8 - 12 mm thick. Younger leaves nearly erect, diverging from central axis by only 1 - 3 cm, older leaves at right angles to stem or slightly reflexed, leaf- shape obovate, sometimes cuspidate but more often not, deeply concave on upper face, strongly convex and inconspicuously keeled on lower face, in side view sigmoid with apical 1 - 2 cm slightly recurving, 3 - 5 cm long, 1.5 - 2 cm wide at widest part 1 - 1.5 cm below apex, 6 - 10 mm wide at base, the margins weakly to strongly erose and minutely undulate and forming a light blue-green band 1.5 - 2 mmm wide, remainder of leaf darker bluish green, slightly glaucous, reddish near base. Flowering stem usually single, erect to leaning, racemose, (30-) 45 (-50) cm long or more, peduncle ca 20 - 25 cm long, ca 4 mm thick near base, 3 mm thick just below lowest flower, brownish magenta, slightly glaucous, with ca 17 bracts that are spaced ca 1 - 1.5 cm apart, ascending-expanding, the lower ones obovate to obovate-oblong, the upper ones obovate, with a basal spur 1 - 2 mm long, all resembling the leaves in being variably undulate, erose and with a white marginal zone, 2 - 3 cm long, 6 - 9 mm wide, coloured as the leaves but somewhat reddened apically and along margins. Inflorescence 15 - 30 cm long, the rachis 2 - 3 mm thick, coloured like the peduncle, the bracts erect, the apices incurving, narrowly obovate, 10 - 15 mm long, 4 - 5 mm wide, pedicels equilaterally inserted on rachis but curving toward the light, at right angles to rachis or downcurving, 2 - 6 mm long, ca 1 mm thick, reddish, each with 2 minute linear acute bracteoles 1.5 - 2 mm long and less than 0.5 mm wide. Flowers single, usually directed downwards at a 45° angle, calyx disk ca 3 mm wide, the sepals expanding nearly to a right angle, ovate-oblong, acute, minutely cuspidate, convex on both sides, almost equal, 3 - 5 mm long, ca 1.5 mm wide near base, ca 1 mm thick near middle, bluish grey, slightly reddened along margins and at apex, corolla usually directed downwards at a 45° angle, 7 - 9 mm long, 5 - 6 mm thick near base, 4 - 5 mm thick just below apex, recurving slightly at apex, the opening ca 4 mm wide at middle, obscurely keeled on outer face. Note : E. chazaroi is closely allied to E. helmutiana, growing only some 10 km distant from the latter. The flowering parts are very similar, however the leaves are very different. E. helmutiana has highly succulent and green or strongly reddened, non-glaucous leaves with a straight smooth margin, while the leaves of E. chazaroi are much less succulent and resemble more closely those of E. megacalyx - the leaf margins are more or less crispate, bluish green and with a translucent, minutely erose, whitish border. Echeveria are popular low growing ornamental hobby plants. Their natural habitat is found largely in Mexico, with some from Central America, South America, the United States. Their natural habitat favours rocky areas, trees and dry areas. The species can be hugely variable, which can be either evergreen or decidious. Flowers appear on short stalks (cymes) which grow from compact rosettes with colourful foliage. Echeveria are polycarpic. This means that they may flower many times through their lifetime. Echeveria are popular host plants for butterflies and also bees. The species is drought tolerant, but do better with a little water and fertiliser. It's hybrids and cultivars tend to be less tolerant of frost, all day shade and severe sun exposure. In temperate climates, most species will lose their lower leaves in winter and become 'leggy' and less attractive. This can be prevented by still providing up to half a day sunshine or by using grow lights. Echeveria are also popular pot plants and appear in most succulent collections. They can be easily propagated by separating offsets (pups), from leaf cuttings and by growing from seed.

They can be easily propagated by separating offsets (pups), from leaf cuttings and by growing from seed.


Planting

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

Echeveria can be propagated easily by separating pups, but also by leaf cuttings, and by seed. It needs a warm, sunny position with well drained soil to develop their foliage colour. It is recommended to position plants in an area where they are in part shade. This means that they should be in morning sun, or afternoon sun, or both (but shaded during the harsh midday period). Alternatively, plants may be grown under full filtered sun underneath shade cloth which is usually stocked by your local hardware store. 50% filtration is recommended to avoid sunburn but maintain great colour. You may need to test what works well in your particular climate. Most succulents will be grown in containers and pots and they will need good drainage medium. Add coarse grit such as perlite or pumice to soil and repot every year in late-spring. Don't worry about damaging the roots when re-potting as most Echeveria generally tolerate disturbance well.

 

Flowering

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

Echeveria could flower a number of times through the year. Flowering can use much of the plant’s energy, therefore it’s recommended that flower stalks are removed from sick or weaker plants until they are well established. If your plant is healthy, enjoy it’s beautiful show of blooms. Flowers on short stalks (cymes) arise from compact rosettes of succulent's fleshy, often brightly coloured leaves. Species are polycarpic, meaning that they may flower and set seed many times over the course of their lifetimes and indeed a number of times per year.

 

Propagating

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

Pluck a leaf gently from the stem taking care not to damage the leaf. It should have a u-shape if plucked correctly. Leave the leaf for a few days to callous over. Once this has happened, place the leaf on top of your propagation medium of choice with the u-shaped end downward, rest the leaf on a bamboo stick or similar at a 45 degree angle to the propagation medium. Propagation is best done in indirect light, not in direct sunlight. Alternatively, a grow light can be used. Roots should sprout in two to four weeks, followed by new tiny leaves. At this point, depending on the humidity and rainfall in your area, you may mist or lightly water your leaves as the plant grows. Resist the urge to remove the mother leaf once it becomes dried up and shrivelled. It’s best for this process to occur naturally.
