Avocado leaves curling down

jododoSeptember 7, 2013

Hey, i'm new to this forum, not sure it is the righht section but here i go...

I have a problem with my avocado tree ( grown from seeds ). I actually have 2 of them, one is doing good. The other one is doing good also, growing and everything but i have a problem with leaves curling down... Tought it didnt have enough light so i hadded lights, i water frequently without overwatering... Checked for root rot nothing... I really don't know why the leaves are doing that. For a week, i moist the leaves daily... Btw, no leaves turning yellow or brown, no dropping leaves...

I've joined a picture so you can see.

J...you know the chances of getting edible fruit from an ungrafted tree is slim....right? Anyway, your leaves are fine. They often roll to protect themselves from sun, etc.

Yeah i know, i'm not growing it for fruits... Mostly for the fun of getting it from seed etc... Just experimenting ;)

Probably on the wrong board tought...

For the avocado leaves... It doesn't get that much sun ( only one light for it )... Idk, i'll continue experimenting with it and try to find out what is wrong.

The other one have perfect leaves, only 2 full grown, about 5 growing at the top :) just need to pinch in again cuz it doesnt look like it wants to form branches

Very common for the leaves to do this.
What size container, what kind of potting mix?

The pot is a terracota pot, 8'' diameter, 6-7'' deep.

Soil is about 30% perlite, 10 % cactus mix, 60% potting mix.

Used a bit of what i had left, didnt really know what to do when i repotted it...
