How we grow it
After eating avocado, we save the pit and try to grow it. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, but the best part is enjoying in watching it grow.
- Save an avocado pit (without cutting) and washit under the water to get rid off any residue. Let it dry, then insert 3-4 toothpicks about halfway up the side of the pit
- Suspend the pit broad end of the pit down in a drinking glass or jar. Fill the container with enough water to submerge the bottom third of the seed
- Place it in a warm spot out of direct sunlight. Don’t forget to change the water regularly. Roots and a sprout should appear in about 2-6 weeks. If not, start with another seed
- When the sprout gets to be about 10-12 cm tall, cut it back to about 7 cm to encourage more root growth
- Once the stem grows out again, plant the pit in an 10-inch pot filled with rich potting soil. Now it’s time to let your avocado tree grow, grow, grow!
You have to get up and plant the seed and see if it grows, but you can’t just wait around, you have to water it and take care of it.
