    Some cultivars of crotons are prolific and "self" branch regularly. Then there are others that no not or rarely. Branching needs to be enticed by pinching, trimming or air layering. :MeanWeed

    Based upon observations on my plants, I'm compiling a list. Please add any cultivars to the list that you have experienced that are reluctant to branch. :FastGrow2

    Ron, for me, the one that rings the most true is Pop's Yard. After seeing Jeff's beautiful specimen plant I can't understand why mine won't branch not even once. It just barely grows at all despite my showering it with love. I need to find out what Jeff does to his.

    From my experience you need to get into wood before some cultivars multiple branch.

    Oh, good thought, Randy. I guess I've wondered that.
