Don't throw away your dead no leaf crotons. There is HOPE! I forgot about this plant like alllll winter and when I realized it was a dried up stick but then I noticed these green bumps of hope. I can't believe it #crotonpetra #newgrowth

Lucky you! Mine dropped a lot of leaves over the winter but kept enough I knew it was still alive

Like I literally cannot believe it's like this. I don't even know what the green nubs are? Will they be leaves? So crazy @lesliecole49 like I never watered it. For like months

Mine finally stopped dropping leaves, just in time for our early spring. Yours looks to be doing very well

It funny @docthrill it has a pretty long stem with like 10 beautiful leaves at the top. Its nice to have a tall plant tho when u have the pots all.close together so it can stand out

Mine looks good with others too. It’s so big it had to be at the top of the mix @heatherdirtyhands

@cyndi I know but I haven't moved it too much that's why I was confused. Didnt know if it was just dormant or something
