Transplanted Avocado Tree Not Growing

I have an avocado tree that has grown to be about a foot long from the pit. When I planted the avocado half of the split pit fell off. It has been about 2.5 months since then and my avocado hasn't been growing. It has two leaves that are limp and what looks like a leaf that started since I replanted it, but hasn't done much. The color is great which suggests it's not dying. Does any one have any suggestions to help it along?

Aww. Poor plant! It looks dry and dark. These lovelies need lots of water and sun. Try a few days in a sunny window and give it a nice drink every day. Careful though, if the leaves go yellow, it is getting too much water. Hopefully it will perk up with a little TLC! Let us know how it goes!

Stick your index finger in the soil. If it feels dry, water it. You can also fertilize if with Miracle Gro.

These type of plants are best grown outdoors or on a sunny porch. They need plenty of sunlight throughout the day. Now that summer is here it is a good idea to move your plant outside. I know it wouldn't hurt if you gave it a shot of miracle grow in the water.

This is good for the plant and it really looks like it needs some water and some sun.

Make sure the pot you put this in has a good drainage and the water doesn't sit in the bottom of the soil and rot. This will be unhealthy for the roots of the plant.

Avocados do well in a California climate so you understand that they need a lot of sun. Also a lot of water. Also the soil required is loose and sandy, but fertile soil that can provide excellent drainage Chemically, good fertilizers are Nitrogen - Phosphorous - Potassium (N-P-K on the fertilizer package label) and Zinc (Zn).

Here's a link with great info on growing them and keeping for them: www.avoseedo.com/.../
