We know avocados like dry soil, but are there specific guidelines to follow?
"Growing conditions: Give avocado direct light; insufficient light will cause spindly growth. Provide a warm temperature and medium humidity. Keep the soil evenly moist but not wet and soggy. Fertilize once a month throughout the year... Use an all-purpose soil mix for repotting... Avocado is vulnerable to aphids, mealybugs, scale insects and thrips."

"Growth habit: The avocado is a dense, evergreen tree, shedding many leaves in early spring. Growth is in frequent flushes during warm weather in southern regions with only one long flush per year in cooler areas."
"Foliage: Avocado leaves… normally remain on the tree for 2 to 3 years."
