Ideas On How To Grow An Avocado Plant

You will enjoy to see how and avocado stem is sprouting from the pit. If you want to have a beautiful avocado plant and in the end a beautiful tree make sure that the pit is maturing inside the avocado. Just follow the few tips bellow and you will be an “expert” at growing avocado tree’s from seed or pit. Begin by removing the seed or pit from a ripe. Using cool water wash the pit and remove all the green fruit from it. Gently wipe the pit with paper towels. Using four toothpicks stab the pit one third of the way up. Using a glass or jars filled with water, place the avocado pit, pointing up. Keep in mind that you are not allowed to place the jar in direct sunlight. You have to make sure all the time that the base of the pit is always in an inch of water. In approximately six weeks the pit will start to split and a stem should sprout from the top ad roots from the bottom. If you don’t have this result until six week you have to start all over again. When the step has about six inches you have to cut it back to three inches. In the following three weeks you will have more roots at the base of the pit. After this period prepare to plant the seeds.  Use a flower pot, rich potting soil. You have to make sure that the pit will be covered with soil leaving half of it above dirt line. Also you have to make sure the stem is straight up. You have to keep your new potted plant moist and on a windowsill or near direct light. Enjoy your avocado plant!!!

    I am growing three Avocado saplings this year. I’ve got about 15-20 seeds awaiting planting; some have shriveled & turned brown. Are they still viable?
    Also, I am in Zone 7 (Georgia, USA) & am wondering if I can plant them permanently outside when they are about a year old. Do you know?
    Any information you can provide will be very helpful.

      Hello, Alicia. If the seeds are brown you can not use them anymore. No, they are not viable. Wait until the tree is one and a half year old and then you can plant outside. Make sure that the tree gets plenty of water when its outside. Thank you for following us.

    Can you tell me how long before these plants will bear fruit ? Do you need a female and male plant to bear fruit ? Thanks jenny

      The avocado tree will bear fruitsbut you have to wait 7-15 years, and the fruit will not be the same as the parent variety.
