Why are the edges of my avocado plant leaves turning brown? It is kept indoors near a window with indirect light. Should I cut it back to restart new leaves? Could it be root bound?

  • Are there drafts by the window? Is there any kind of air outlet (like a heater vent) within 8' of it?

  • A picture might help. Brown edges (especially tips) could be leaf-burning from too much nitrogen, but it could be other things, too. Nov 25, 2015 at 9:14
