Anyone know what is going on with my avocado tree last year it was fine i grew it from a seed but this year the leaves have suddenly started browning and dying off and at first i thought i was over-watering and it slowly got worse so i thought i was under watering and still no go.

  • Have you been fertilizing it? And if so, with what? – Graham Chiu Jun 5 '18 at 0:02
  • No fertilizer i was thinking the plant may be missing something but have no idea what to give it. – BlueRaven Jun 5 '18 at 13:46

    Fertilizer is as important as water and light. Use a basic fertilizer such as 5-5-5. Have you been spraying the leaves of this plant? If so what are you using? Are you using tap water? Is that soil potting soil or is it out of your garden with lots of wood chips in it? Plants make their own food. Plants have to have chemistry with which to do photosynthesis that makes the food for plants. If there is no nitrogen, too little phosphorus or potassium or a dozen other micro chemicals plants slowly die. Osmocote 14-14-14 extended release, use half of the recommended amount. – stormy Jun 6 '18 at 7:32
  • It is potting soil and i am using reverse osmosis filtered water. Ill get some Osmocote or something similar and hopefully that helps thanks for the info. – BlueRaven Jun 6 '18 at 13:59
