Hi,
I'm living in Europe, Austria, Vienna and I have a little avocado tree. I grew my avocado from a seed "imported by hand" from Ecuador. This is its 3rd year and its 6 feet tall now. I have havy problems with it. Aside from scales, the leafs become black borders and white stains and fall down.

I know I dont optimal conditions for an avocado. The water contains limescale and I put the tree in normal soil (black). But it stands in a kind of wintergarden (enough light) at temperatures between 22 in winter (now) and 30 during summer. I water it when the soil is dry. I attached a photo. My plan is (was?) to grow the tree up to 12 feets and more. What is the reason? Bakteria, the soil, the water,...?

Any help is very appreciated.

Thank you so much, greetings from Vienna.

Patrick
