Help! My avocado plant is dying and I don’t know why!

Postby VivianFrisky » Thu Mar 07, 2019 1:11 pm

Please HELP
ANY SUGGESTIONS WELCOMED

My avocado tree has been so so healthy but I went on a vacation and came back and he does not look good at all. The leaves are all droopy and have no energy whatsever. A couple of leaves have very crispy ends with no other color than just darker green.

Putting soil: citrus and cactus soil but found a bunch of bugs that I put chemical to try to kill them.
He was slowly getting worse after the chemical.
Now he is in normal potting soil with a lot of sun.

PLEASE HELP!

Hello,

thanks for your post. What kind of chemicals did you use?
And can you post a picture of your plant?

Thanks,

Daniel

I can’t post a photo for some reason....
I used the chemical for killing spider mites, and some other bugs that might be eating up the roots.

I would suggest rinsing the soil with a lot of water and you already repotted that's good.
Also, don't put the plant in direct sunlight, when they are small they can easily burn up.
How often do you water the plant?

Thank you for your suggestions!

I water it when the soil looks dry... I also have a probe to check water contents, soil ph and sunlight. I just need a lot of tips! I just don’t know how to take care of an avocado plant I guess.... I wish I could somehow show you my avocado plant...can I be able to send you an email?
