I’ve had my croton for 3 months and all its leaves are starting to fall off, how do you care for yours?

Garden crotons are one of those really fussy plants that don’t like to be moved around. usually that’s what causes leaf loss, but any sudden change to their care can cause them to shed.

I have my croton in a sunroom that gets light from mid-morning to sundown. it’s next to a window that gets west-southwestern sun. so it gets a LOT of light, which most crotons seem to like. i water it when the top inch or so of soil is dry, and other than mixing in some granular fertilizer into the soil at the beginning of spring, i don’t plan on feeding it again anytime soon.
