Hi there,

I grew an avocado plant out of a pit and it was doing pretty well until a couple of months ago. These brown spots started appearing, first on the lower leaves, and then slowly spreading. We read online and tried to spray it with bug spray, and we think that may have helped (as the new leaves on top don't have brown spots), but I'm trying to understand what the root cause of this is (excuse the pun) and how I can prevent it in the future. Photo attached. Thank you for any help you could provide!
