My avacoda plant is growing tall but has lost all bottom leaves   how do I prevent this from happening ... will leaves grow again from the bottom?

    Your avocado has ambitions to be a tree and, in poor light, poor humidity, poor temperatures, will shed leaves to save its growing tip.

    Have a look at the answers and links on this thread https://forum.gardenersworld.com/discussion/comment/2008723#Comment_2008723 and then think about getting a more suitable, attractive and rewarding houseplant suited to the conditions you have.

    This was gifted to me as a very small plant from a friend who has now passed away I need to keep it alive thank you for sharing the other link. All I can do is hope to keep it alive and healthy 😀😀🌳🌳🌱

    It was probably grown from a stone, we’ve all had a go at that.  I think all drop their leaves.  (Mine certainly did). It probably won’t go on a lot longer anyway.
     Why don’t you buy a nice little plant, maybe a rose by the name of the person you want to remember.

    How to care for it is in the California link in that other thread - key words - light, humidity, temperature!
