    Another that may like the sun. This croton was also left in a too shaded area for way too long, losing much of its color. Doctor Alexander from Jose Lopez. Moose Land is running out of optimal areas with the proper sun/shading conditions. For lack of a better area to plant, it was located between the Kane and Poopsie McGuillicutty. It dropped its leaves rather quickly when exposed to the bright light which the leaves were not acclimated for. Heavy watering and liberal amounts of fertilizer high in nitrogen will be the agenda until this croton gets established. The newly flushing leaves appear to be coloring up and acclimating well to its new growing conditions.
