Hey guys! I just recently got this avocado plant. I want to transplant it into good soil. I got it from someone who visited me recently.
Questions I want to ask about this plant.

Question 1 # will this plant grow well in sandy soil?
Or does it need potting soil?

Question 2# what kind of avocado plant is this if I can get an identification over what avocado plants are genus ,family and species variations ?
I can also look this up online as well but all the information won't all be online.
This is why we need to discuss it here.
And also aspect ! They can tolerate full sun? And etc ,etc. what do you guys know about them?
Thank you !

Yes, it will grow well in sandy soil but remember to keep it watered.

All avocados are Persea americana. You won't know the variety until it matures and bears fruit (at least 10 years from now). But, you may not know than if this is a seed grown tree as seeds don't come true to the parent.

Yes, full sun. Choose the planting location wisely - avocado trees can easily grow to over 50 ft. tall and wide.

Thank you for the info! Yeah I looked it up and it's that of the lauraceae family. And it needs sandy loam soil to grow healthy.
I think I might transplant it to my veggie garden.
There is loads of compost pea straw in there.
My garden is sandy soil.
