Croton Petra Problem
Hi all! I posted the below message in the "Tropical" forum and someone suggested that this would be a better outlet...
I'm new to this forum and new to caring for a Croton plant. I just moved to the Tampa area in June (from VA) and immediately began working on my flower beds.
I planted two croton petra plants along with others (buttercup, cape plumbargo, setcreasea, scaevola, purslane, dwarf pentas). The crotons are doing the worst. The other plants are blooming, growing, and looking healthy overall. The crotons seem to be losing leaves daily (mostly those at the bottom).
I've read folks saying that their crotons do best when the soil can dry out between watering (for indoor growing). Might my crotons be getting too much water (i.e., the frequent Florida rain showers)?
