Overwatering is the most common cause of sudden leaf drop with crotons, but a dip in temperatures below 60F can also cause the same symptoms. If the nights have been warmer than 60F, then overwatering is probably the cause. Try cutting back a little on the moisture and see if your croton won't retain those leaves. Hope so!
