Avocado plant stopped growing
It's my first time planting something and I don't know much about planting. It's been two months since I had my avocado pit suspended in a cup of water. It had grown up to 7 inches and I cut it back to 3 inches (they were supposed to be pinched out to promote growth according to some articles I've read). After cutting it back, it had stopped growing and the tip of the stem had dried up . After 2 days, I cut it back just a few centimeters to remove the dried part, hoping that it would start growing again but it didn't. Will it ever start growing again? How? Please I need help I really want to save my plant.
PS. Just a few days ago, our cat knocked the cup off the table and the avocado pit had split into two. And I noticed the roots were kinda damaged. Would this have somehow caused the plant to stop growing? The plant still continued to grow even if the pit had split though. I put them back together with a rubber band.
