Growing an Avocado Tree from a Pit

My avocado pit grew to 12 in. I cut it back midway up the stem. It is now almost 2 ft high again with four leaves and two more coming. All at the top. It also has, near the bottom, small white bulbous growths numbering five. The stem is very thin but strong. How do I get the plant to get a thicker stem with leaves? And please tell me what the white things are. They look like when you are growing an onion plant. This is my third try and the other two did not have theses growths. Does it determine the sex of my plant? I can actually sit and watch the plant grow.

Plant root stock grafted seedlings rather than seeds to increase chances of bearing fruit.
It takes an avocdo tree 5 years before flowering.
Avocado flowers are open for two days.
The first day they are female,the second male.
Fertilize trees in late winter and early summer with nitrogen.
Zinc,potassium and iron should be added in spring.
Do not prune ones that have flowers.and leaves on them.
Water often but wait until it dries before watering again.
Here is a link to make sure those white spots are not cankers
