I know this will never have an avocado grow off of it because of where I live I have to grow it inside. It's been doing so great but now some of the leaves are browning at the edges and even falling off! What can be causing this? I water it only when the soil gets dry, I keep it pretty moist and it gets lots of light (south facing window plus a grow light) I even have a humidifier for it

In the photo, the soil looks very dry, so that may be the problem.

I agree with WillC. Under-watering, the leaves turn brown on the edges. If it were over-watered, the leaves would turn yellow.
