A hass avocado will not produce in Houston nor will it survive outdoors. The fertilizer you are using is a high nitrogen fertilizer and young avocados do not like a high content fertilizer of any kind whether it be nitrogen, phosphorus or potassium. They prefer small amounts of low content fertilizers. You can use the stuff you have but greatly reduce the amount mixed. I would use about 1/3rd of the recommended amount and use it every 2 weeks. Please send a picture of the plant showing the container and the shape of the tree from a side view. This will not be a quick process of getting the tree back in health.No I do not know the variety of the avocado. I don’t think it will bear fruit. It’s an avocado from the grocery store. It’s a hass avocado. im not sure if that’s the variety. I attached photos of the vegetable food that I have here at home. Will this work or should I change plant foods? Thank you so much for the help!!!
No, keep it outside until the temperatures drop to about 55F and then bring it inside and put it under grow lights. The plant is extremely leggy which shows it is not getting enough sunlight. Also, the browning of the leaf tips and margins show that it is getting too much waterSo should I put this plant inside? I currently have it outside where it gets about 6-8 hours morning sun. I don’t have morning sun inside my home. I live in an apartment where out patio and large widow only get afternoon sun
I presume you have fire ants. Ants themselves don't directly harm a plants root system but, when they colonize around the roots they make the soil drier and over a period of time will make an underground semi-water barrier. Ants need a little moisture in their habitat but in a plant growth situation this is too much water for them. You can make a spinosad soil drench and saturate the soil and this will kill all of them. Your pot is too small and doesn't have enough drainage holesHey chuck… I just lifted my pot to see if the bottom drainage hole looked ok and found a bunch of ants calling my avocado home. How much of a concern is this and what steps should I take?
