What causes the leaves to just start calling off this plant?

Asked by Betty January 19, 2019

Answer

Hello Betty, Although we have not shipped any 6" croton petra I can tell you that many plants will drop lower leaves as they adjust to a new environment. Many factors including change in watering schedule, light and temperature will stress plants. If you purchased your plant online and it was in a box for several days then the darkness and temperature during transit might be the culprit. I would acclimate your plant in a sunny window and keep soil moist until it re-establishes itself and starts to put out new growth. I would not fertilize for the moment. Hope this helps! The United Team

After 5 days the plant is almost dead, and this is not the first croton that I own. Day 0 some of the leaves were looking sad, I thought that it was matter of the trip, but it seems that the plant was dying already by them.
