I plant my avacado seed from an avacado I ate about a year ago. It did well for the most part inside. About a week ago I moved it outside and it is not doing well. The top looks dead but the bottom is still green. It's been like 80s outside. I'm from Chicago. Should I move it back inside, cut the stem, water it more or less, find it more shade or something else. Thanks for the advice.

I am afraid that moving the plant outside and leaving it there for a week has proved fatal. You don't take a plant that has been inside its entire life and stick it outside where the climate is a lot different and leave it. You do it slowly. Start off with 2 hours and every other day or two add an hour. You might try to make an avacado bush by cutting it below where the brown starts on the trunk. It might sprout new leaves but its doubtful.

Move it back inside. Where ever the plant is brown that part is already dead. If you cut it directly below the brown in the still green part it is possible, but not very likely, to sprout new leaves. If you really want to try to save it get a product from a nursery or online called SuperThrive and follow the directions. If anything will save the plant it will.
