Croton Care

liyichun28 added on January 2, 2018 | Answered

I grew this croton for a long time and it was beautiful. Recently due to the cold weather, it dropped leaves as shown. However, I have also noticed that there are many white small hollow shells in the soil. When you squeeze it, it is broken and empty inside. Is this a disease? What shall I do? Thanks! Terry
