How to grow avocado tree

First clean and prepare the pit by suspending it in a glass of water using 3-4 tooth picks along the sides of the avocado pit, for the bottom to hang into the water. Which side of the avocado seed goes in the water?

The toothpicks should be supporting the seed so that the pointed half is out of the water and the bottom half is in the water. The sprouting tip will come out of the pointed end, so be sure the flat end is immersed in water.

Next place the glass with pit in a sunny window sill and change the water every other day. Make sure the water is at room temp. The pit will split after two weeks at this time carefully pull off the skin.

Four to Eight weeks later the stem will start to break and rise up from the middle of the pit. The roots should be growing and at this time is when you will take it out of the water and plant it into soil.

Remember the stem should be at least 8-10 inches from the pit and at this time is when you should plant. The stem should have tiny leaves as well.

Place the pit so half of it is covered into the soil and press firmly around it. You can start off by planting the small avocado in a container in a sunny location outdoors.

Remember to keep your new little plant in a sunny location and watered to help it flourish and grow into a tree.
