We are rapidly approaching our dry season. Nov. and the beginning of Dec. seems to be wetter than last year. I hand water my crotons. It is being noticed that the leaves are staying wet for longer periods with our cooler temperatures. I recall last May when temperatures were rising and we had very dry conditions, it was difficult keeping the plants hydrated. How much watering should be applied once the dry season ensues? Efficiently conserving water while maintaining their vigor is the goal. Any recommendations from the long term crotonheads on this forum?
