Hi, i have a 8 months avocado tree plant and recently i am noticing dark spots on my leaves and black tips too and it is advancing slowly. What could the problem be? Too much water? Salt problems?

Thank you very much

Avacados don't like to live in WET soil. They like damp soil. When watering them water them thoroughly until ALL of the soil is saturated, then do not water them again until the top 3 or so inches are dry. Watering too often leads to browning leaf tips and margins. It causes black discolorations on the leaves. It leads to root rot and plant death. A plant can survive longer with no water than being saturated for too long a period. Watering too often literally drowns the plant, it denies the plant oxygen. Did you know that more plants are killed by watering too often than by disease? As far as the sun is concerned an avacado is a tropical plant and therefore likes all of the sun it can get except in very dry and hot conditions like in the Sahara or someplace similar.
