It’s getting too tall. I just can’t curb the growth. I think it grows taller over the weekend due to lack of light (bolting), because the desk lamp isn’t on.
I’m tempted to top it, and see if the smaller second set of leaves lower down will grow. I don’t want to bend it again - I don’t want to end up with hideously deformed mutant squiggly tree.

The friend who gave me the avocado plant came by for a look today. When it gets a bit bigger we will prune off some of the new leaves. Hopefully that will keep it short.

It was growing faster than I thought again. I wondered if it would just keep getting taller.

Not bad for an overhead desk lamp.
