We have a two year old Avocado plant grown from a pit. It is kept indoors and is now about 12" tall but appears to have stopped growing. It is regularly watered but the ends of the leaves are turning brown and starting to curl up, the leaves have turned a light green colour. Does the plant need fertilizer or the soil changing|?

Thanks for your help Moon grower



Possibly needs repotting in fresh compost... Though these exotics tend not to fruit. Copy and paste the link below into your web browser for lots of info

Know nothing about growing these delicious fruits ... in addition to MGs advice above, check out for nutritional and other diseases, which may explain your leaf discoloration.

Any good houseplant food would help, too. They aren't big feeders, but any plant can eventually starve to death in a pot.
