Stem Too Long on Avocado Houseplant

Anonymous added on September 23, 2015 | Answered

My avocado houseplant has a long stem (7 inches) with one leaf at 7", another at 7 3/4" another at 8 1/2" and so on. Can I replant it, burying half the stem? Then prune it where? It's growing well, but too gangly. Help me, please. Thank you,
