I transferred my avocado tree to a 10 gallon container. When I opened the bag of miracle grow fertilizer it had some mold on the top and I threw away that portion, hoping that the rest of the soil wasn’t affected. Today my tree leaves don’t want to stay up and I fear that it will die. When I transferred it some of the roots stayed on the felt material from the previous container but the main biggest root is still there and as big as the palm of my hand,

My question are

Should I make holes on the bottom of the pot as I did not when I transferred the tree?

Will the tree die from the mold?

You MUST have drainage holes and the mold will not hurt the tree. The mold is a fungus and it is helping break down the organic matter in the soil.
