Transplanted this 1 year-old avocado tree last week (and then went on a 5-day vacation) and it's in a horrible condition. I suspect that the soil was too dry, so I watered plenty when I came back from my trip. I haven't seen any improvement in the last 2 days, so maybe I'm just too late, or something else is wrong. Any advice?

Avacado needs consistent moisture, it will grow back out I'm sure.  Keep soil moist at all times, just not soaking wet. I killed many of them before I got it right.

Yep. Actually, I find that if it's colder than they like, letting them dry out makes them go dormant. Though when it gets warmer, they're water pigs.

I have actually killed avocado trees by overwatering in the winter. Either way, hydroton or other expanded clay product really helps keep a happy medium.

I have one that Iā€™m trying to grow from seed, but every time it grows a new leave it starts browning at tip, which then travels up the rest of the leaf and kills it. I have no idea why. Tried watering more, tried watering less, tried leaving water for 24 hours to allow chlorine to evaporate, but leaves still always die.
