Very little is known about the reproduction of Discus cronkhitei.  Based on what we know about Discus shimekii, we can get an idea of what reproduction might be like for Discus cronkhitei.  According to the Montana Field Guide, Discus shimekii is monoecious, or hermaphroditic, which means it has both reproductive structures.  They mate from March to June and lay eggs from March to August in clutches of 3-6 eggs.  They lay these eggs in a hole in moist ground, usually under a log.  It is still unknown at what age or maturity level these snails start to reproduce.

Hopefully, in the near future there will be more research into the reproductive habits of Discus cronkhitei.  But for now we'll just have to make due with the information available.
