That discoloration is absolutely minimal, the drooping is usually a sign of lack of water not the other way around, but you never know. Your plant looks better than half of my seedlings at the moment, but I have so many of them they tend to get neglected

Avacados will eventually die if the tap root at the bottom is always wet. That doesn't mean what you want to do will kill your avacado tree, it's just that it sounds like a bad idea and a risk.

Wow, so tall and still such a thin trunk. My avocado seedlings look very different to my commercial avocado that I hope to get cuttings from so I can turn my seedlings into viable fruit trees. The reason I say this is I have about 50 seedlings and they all look like your plant, but have thicker trunks and very different to the commercial one that I have ...

I have about 50 avocado seedlings growing at the moment and a lot of them look like this, I usually cut off the leaves and they grow back nice new ones. As for keeping them inside in a small jar, two of my avocado's have been indoors for a long time, one of them I took outside and it died the other got its delicate leaves shredded by a strong wind, I think ...

I am currently growing about 50 avacados from seed and frequently get the problem you describe even from plants that havent been transplanted, I just strip off all the leaves and they grow back. I doubt it's transplant shock, avacados don't mind at all being transplanted, compared to jack fruit and papaya which freak out when you give them a new home

It could be cold damage but it looks more like low humidity You should keep it indoors if you can with plenty of light and ensure the plant has all the humidity it needs. It would be a good idea to check and make sure the roots are still alive as the frost would damage them. It could be game over

Avocado plants tend to get brown leaves for lots of different reasons Normally when flowering it would use the mobile nutrients that it requires from the leaves. Leading to dead leaves that are brown and dry as you describe. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=R33ifj7JqgI but judging from your post it may be due to cold weather or chlorine in the water. Update: ...

Bottom watering plants keeps the roots uniformly moist, but it doesn't wash away the salt and mineral deposits that accumulate on the top of the soil over time. Pour water over the top of the soil until it drains out the bottom once a month, just to rinse the soil and remove the excess minerals.

Not sure what the brown spots are on the leaves. That isn't soil though - looks like coco coir. If the avocado seed is only in coco coir, then the roots are struggling to find nutrients, as coco coir isn't used for nutrients. If it were me, I'd replace it with some proper organic seed raising mix - get one that's soft and fluffy to the touch. If it's chunky ...

I've found that avocados tend to grow a deep root system, so when you start seeing roots coming out the bottom of the pot, it's DEFINITELY time to transplant them to a bigger pot. With the photo included, I'd only have put maybe 2-4 seeds in it, tops. I just transplanted 4 of my avo seeds about the same height as those in the picture, into a 50L rubbish bin (...

You have done a good job at branching this avocado plant. At this size, it is time to repot. It will keep the plant from being root bound. Well spaced roots make better use of nutrition and support consistent growth. You can use a light dose of sea-weed in soil when repotting.

I'm afraid the choice of a glass jar for a growing pot is not going to help this plant very much. Likely there are no drainage holes in the bottom so there is nowhere for excess water to go. But that said, it sounds like you have not overwatered anyway so you might not have hit that issue. The glass will help in that you can easily see roots. You should see ...

Sorry for the late response. I would like to mention I have seen many avocados on online forums. This has to be one of the better ones I have seen. You did a good job with the prune the branching is beautiful. I would not prune it again until it has at least one or two more sets of leaves. At this point it will be a multi-trunk tree if left with no ...
