I live in western Arkansas / eastern Oklahoma. There are generally mild winters with snow and hot, humid summers where the temperature is often over 90 °F
For the past year I have been growing an Avocado that I started from a seed. About 6 months ago the original stem lost its leaves and turned brown, but it is still there in the pot. Right after this happened another "plant" started growing in the same pot. Since we moved a couple of months ago, I moved the entire contents of the pot to a much larger 20" pot and kept it outside for the summer. I've already looked at many of the other posts about avocados but none of them look like what is now growing in my pot.
My questions are:
Is this plant still an Avocado or is it something totally different?
Do I need to prune it back or should I continue to let it grow?
