Don't know if I have over watered it.
Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I am unable to see the damage. In most cases, Crotons will go through a bit of stress once moved to a new location. If it does not recover with proper care, then you may look to treating an infection.
Here is an article to help you know what they require:
When the tips of the leaves of my croton plant turn brown, is it a good or bad idea to cut the whole leaf off.? Thank You
It is best to take the whole leaf as it starts to degrade more than half way. Unfortunately, your photo did not come through, so I cannot say what is causing it, but you will need to correct what is causing the issue as well.
This article will help you with the care of the plant:
Multi colored a bit leggy stem. Falling over.
The botanical name of your plant is Codiaeum variegatum pictum. You'll want to read this article to make sure you have the optimal growing conditions: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/croton/care-croton-plants.htm.
I never knew Banana crotons flowered. I had to do some research to find out they do flower. I have had this plant for 2-1/2 yrs and repotted it once and then I saw this flower spike. At the base of where the spike was attached there is also something growing that is cone shaped. The night after I took the attached pictures I watered my plant as usual. That evening the flower spike completely fell off. What happened? The cone shaped thing is still attached. Please help.
Perhaps the plant is not getting the humidity it requires or you may have a case of spider mites. You may want to review the plant's growing conditions listed in this article: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/croton/care-croton-plants.htm
Another possibility is that this is the natural behavior of the plant. I'm including a link that addresses, in general, why blooms drop from plants, and hope this helps: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/why-healthy-blooms-fall.htm
hi there , a month ago I bought a beautiful bushy croton mammy and it started to drop off leaves, so I thought it was due to underwatering or light issues. Soon I realized it had spider mites so I bought a insecticide (Dr.boom spider mites knockout) as soon I applied it I noticed the little mites stopped moving and I cleaned thoroughly any spider web left. it Seemed to be working until now that is dropping more leaves than ever; its been 2 days since the spider mite knockout application. What can I do now ? What did I do wrong? I really wanna save the plant. Thanks
Spider mites will cause quite a lot of damage. Likely, a fungicide will be necessary to take care of any residual effects from the mites, since they carry an array of plant pathogens.
Crotons are finicky. They will drop their leaves for just about any reason, including moving the plant to another location. This is usually short lived. Many times they will recover from what appears to be complete death.
Here are some articles that will help:
Attached is a pic of the plants showing a pile of leaves. Is it unusual to lose that many leaves because of being in a new location?
Location change is the first thing one looks at when crotons drop foliage. They are very sensitive to change in environment. They should regrow in 3 to 4 weeks.
These articles give you the care information you need to make your crotons happy and regrow their leaves.
Hello! I’ve had my banana croton for nearly 8 years and it’s the first time I’ve had this problem. Several leaves are falling off, all of which have a white residue mainly near the center of the leaves (zoom in on attached photo). One small area had a tiny web, so maybe spider mites? Any idea what else it could be?
I would say that spider mites is the correct diagnosis. Here are some articles that will help:
