Moving an Avocado Plant Outside
I have an avocado plant that I started from a seed and it is about 2 feet tall now. It has very large leaves and I am waiting to transfer it to the outside. What shall I do to prevent it from burning from the sunshine when I move it outdoors?

You simply need to harden it off some, or acclimate it, to the outdoors by slowly introducing light. Start it out in bright but indirect light (like a bright, shady location) for a few hours each day and then eventually give it more light and more time outside. Within a few weeks, it should be fine to remain outdoors day and night and will enjoy the sunlight.
