Two put of three big leaves look like this. What am I doing wrong?
I am not sure what you are refering to. The leaf looks fairly healthy. It seems a bit pale, a bit of brown spotting, but an indoor environment will not produce the vigour of an outdoor plant. I have never grown avocado, so perhaps I am just not seeing the problem that you do.
Oh that's good news! It's a pretty young plant and the leaves where looking absolutely gorgeous the first couple weeks. A strong green colour with no crimping on the sides.
Your avocado is just fine. Slight undulation of leaf edges is pretty normal. And AFAIK, slight yellowish-brownish hue is common too.
With the indoor growing of Advcado's Avoid tap water as the salt will kill it. Also, good drainage a must, and no overwatering as that will also kill it.
Great tips!! Thank you
Vancouver area municipal tap water has negligible salt content. It is just rainwater running off the North Shore Mountains. A small amount of calcium carbonate is added to neutralize its natural acidity, along with some chlorine, which will evaporate away if the water is left in an open container for a day or more. I've been growing indoor plants in Burnaby for more than 40 years using tap water without seeing any signs of the presence of salt.
