Avocado as a Container Plant (pics)

Greetings, everyone!

Welcome to the start of a new Thread on growing Avocados in containers!

A little background: in November 2009, I dug up a volunteer Avocado seedling from my garden,

so that I could grow it as a houseplant over the Winter. I chose the shortest, stoutest Avocado seedling

(out of five that sprouted throughout the garden), as I didn't want to end up with a lanky, floppy plant

during the Winter months.

My continuing goal with this plant is to keep it short and bushy and "house friendly" with regular pruning.

Here is a link to the previous Thread, posted in the Houseplant Forum, which exceeded the maximum

number of posts that Garden Web allows: Avocado converted to Houseplant (pics)

Lastly, a current pic of the Avocado. Click for a full-size view:
