have been growing an avocado plant for almost two years now. I started it from an avocado seed. It is about a foot and a half tall now and has many leaves and has been very successful.
This morning, my cat chewed it it half!! She chewed the stem clean in half. There has to be a way to fix this, I've invested so much time into this plant, it's going to break my heart if it dies now.
Is there anything I can do to save it? Can I put the top half (with the leaves on it) into a glass of water so it will grow new roots? Or do I just keep watering the stem and hope it can survive leafless? Should I try to graft it? Would it even work?
