Hello,

Not sure if you can see in the photo, but there is a new large stem growing from the base of our dwarf avocado and was wondering if we let it grow or remove?

I'm guessing its graphed.
Any stems growing below graph should be cut off.
There from wild rootstalk.

I can't see it well, but that may be a graft above the new limbs...the darker section where it looks more like bark. A better pic. of that area would be helpful. If that is a graft, Philip would be correct.

I can't imagine a nursery grown dwarf avocado that isn't grafted. Cut it off.
