Q.Young Avocado Plant From Seed Has Dark Brown Leaves That Fall Off

Anonymous added on May 22, 2011 | Answered

The young avocado tree is outside on the patio and gets some sun. It is about 8 months old and has new leaf growth, but they turn a dark brown and fall off. New growth on top each time, but the same thing happens. What could be the problem?

It sounds like a watering issue. Increase watering. Plants in containers outdoors should be watered at least once a day.
