A single avocado tree that I'm growing is having the following symptoms at the same time. Any knowledge and advice about it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome!

Avocado tree leaves curl and brown like that when they are not getting enough water.

Hi. Thank you for your input. It has actually been raining a lot this month as a result of monsoon season, could there be other possible causes? Thank you.

A plant that has been under watered looks about the same as a plant that is being over watered. Are the new leaves small and sparse? If so, your tree is developing root rot from all the rain.

I had the same problem and found that the ph levels were off .
being potassium(burn)
Under watered or over watered but in that case as my plant was growing in water for almost a year as I will show I have since transplanted it to soil and it's doing just fine.

A little light not to much and lots of tlc lol
