    This croton was getting very leggy. It had a male inflorescense that kept producing flowers which Chris was harvesting for crossing. It should have gotten trimmed awhile ago. About a month ago, it got nailed by a huge Royal Palm frond and was bent to the ground. I put an air layer on it to hopefully save the growing tip 6/15. With all this great weather, it has uprighted itself. Hope I can harvest this air layer before the next massive frond hits it again.

    Ron, Don't plant anything you like under a Royal. I am glad mine is gone and I got more space to plant what I liked.
