Can you propagate a croton from a leaf cutting?

I was at the local nursery today and there was a large croton leaf on the floor. I brought it home, and I'm wondering if it can make a new plant, or if it should just go in my compost bin?

i thought croutons were a piece of stale bread in a salad.. go figure...

hit the link .... from my short review.. i don't see propagation by leaf ...

but whats the harm in trying.. slice it clean.. stick it in some media in a pot.. cover with a plastic bag ... it either rots or grows... good luck

You need some of the stem in order to propagate croton. It won't grow roots and shoots from leaf tissue.
