Q.Can propagated avocados be repotted with pit under soil after ~2ft growth?

I have inherited two avocado plants grown from pit. Each is ~2ft tall and require repotting. Can I repot with the pit under soil now, or does it need to remain exposed to air?

They can be. It won't hurt them as long as they are well established and healthy. Just don't go too far above that, or you risk infection to the crown and bark.
