Droopy crotons! Need help
I just repotted these crotons that had been previously potted with other crotons and draceanas in the same pot (see previous post) Most of them look ok, but a couple of them are VERY droopy. I broke quite a few roots to try to get these plants separated from the draceanas, but I still tried to keep as much as I possibly could. I had already repotted them the day after I got them which was just a week ago, but I had kept all of the plants together to avoid breaking stems and roots. Is this too much stress for these plants, is there anything I can do to make them better? Should I just cut off the droopy tips? On the tallest ones, can I cut back the top 4-5 inches to make it a little fuller and more compact, and if I do, can I root the tip cuttings? I really love crotons, but I previously have not had the best of luck with them. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
