Avocado from pit keeps on growing

22 Aug

I grew this guy from a pit last year and have been pinching the tips to try to make it a small plant but currently it is two feet high and is growing really vigorously! The new growth is a browny greenish colour and then turns to the deeper green when leaves reach full size. The leaves are really big – about 20 cms… 8inches. The initial trunk branched into three separate branches and now I am pinching those so they will branch too. I will probably repot over winter. Hope he doesn’t mind being cramped for a few more months.
