My croton plant — the leaves are all facing the floor.
I brought the plants to the nursey; he repotted them. I left the plants in the car over night and it got cold. They have been in the house. At one point I brought the croton plant back to him he told me it needed water. When I water them all the water comes out in the tray. I use miracle grow. I mix it with water. Still no change. I want to keep them going because they're from my husband's funeral. pls help me.

They got cold, and the more that you add to try and revive it, the more it will shock it. They need to be left in a warm area to recover.
Let them almost completely dry out down to two inches into the soil. Do not feed for quite awhile, as they are likely overfed now. Only water when the top of the soil is completely dry down to two inches.
Cut any leaves off that turn dry, as they turn dry, but not before that. With some patience, you may start to see new growth again. If so, then you can begin caring for it as a normal plant.
