Ok, It's not really an emergency. I just need to know what the best way to grow an avacado tree from seed is ASAP. Anyone?
I sprouted a few by keeping a pit in water for a few weeks and then potting the pits in a small clay planter until the roots grew out the bottom hole. I watered often. Then when I saw roots I re-potted into a larger planter and I now have two trees and I am working on three more :)
I dipped the end in rooting hormone and planted in a starter mix. It took about a month for the shoot to emerge. I had two that grew to 12-18 ". Unfortunately, I did not get mine re-potted soon enough and they perished.
Simply throwing them on the ground works well here, but I haven't tried it in the cold. This little one is about 3-4 months old. Why is your avocado an emergency?
Put in a damp paper towel in an open zip-lock, leave in a drawer, or in the kitchen, not in direct light. Check it every few days to make sure that the paper towel has a little moisture (not wet!). As soon as the seed begins to split, pot it into a well-draining potting mix, half buried.
Avocado, from the Nahautl word for testicle.
So many options I'm not sure which one to try!
cactus, I'll try and remember that lol.
Make more guacamolÃÂ© and try them all!
If only I had more avocadoes purp! lol
