Some leaf loss is normal, but your plant may be trying to tell you it is unhappy in its present situation. Crotons like bright light but will tolerate lower light levels. They don't like drafts so be sure yours is not under a vent or near a door. They do like moisture but want the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Make sure yours is in the best environment possible and then water it throughly, allowing the top half inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Hope this helps!
