Hello, I need some help. In early spring I potted annona plant from fruit seed, I actually do not know what kind of species it is. But the problem is that this plant is dropping leafs now and the bottom of the leaf looks strange, there are some light brown "stains". Please look at the photos. If some one knows whats going on, please help.

Same problem with Persea americana, just "stains" are on the top of the leaf. Look photos.

The avocado has done well, judging by the amount of leaves.
Are the plants indoors? Where do you live (generally)? will the plants come inside for winter or, have they been inside the whole time? a bit more information about the conditions, or overall pics, may be helpful.

Avocado also dropping some leaves, about 1 leaf per month. These plants are indoors all the time. Both are potted from seed in early spring. I live in North Europe. I spray with warm water once a week my plants. Annona was growing perfect.. I don't imagine what's going on.

Thanks.
You will be getting less sunlight now. Are they only on window light? Can they get added light, such as fluorescent?
I hope you get other opinions, however my guess is the plants are slowing down due to less light. Careful not to keep them too wet in the soil, do not add water frequently but rather let them be a bit dry on top, and stop spraying the leaves.

Thank you, I have special red blue lights for plants, but it does not help to stop falling leaves. There are something other. May it be infected by something? Example, fungus maybe?

I don't know, but I do believe those who say that spraying water on indoor plants does not contribute meaningful humidity to the plant's living space, and may promote fungus.
Still hoping others add opinions here.

It is short term humidity at best. I don't think they'll develop a fungus from spraying though unless the leaves are staying damp.
