How do i make this avocado more sturdy
Give it MUCH MUCH more sunlight. They are a full sun, all day sun plant, that likes it very warm. After all, it is a tropical plant.

Absolutely NOT. This plant needs all of the photosynthesis/chlorophyll making capabilities it can possibly get and removing leaves will only further speed up the demise of this plant.

Even where I live in South Texas it is almost impossible to grow an avocado here because it always freezes in the winter. There are a few hybrid avocados that are more cold hardy but even they will either be severely damaged or killed each year. Avocados bought from a store and grown from a pit will not survive sub-freezing weather. They require full sun and keeping them indoors will be a futile experiment, at best. Moving them inside your house during the winter also will not work as there will be a lack of sunlight and humidity and the plant will go into shock and lose most or all of its leaves which may or may not resprout. It will also never be an attractive house plant with limited light.
