Avocado Pit?

Sami-Doughty(5)September 6, 2013

I don't know if this post belongs here exactly or not, but it is germination from a seed. I have tried growing an Avocado tree from a pit. I have had it for a couple weeks, keeping it well watered in the suspended in the glass with water method. My seed has split all the way around, but nothing has grown from it, not even a root. I just planted it in some miracle grow potting soil and watered it well in hopes that maybe something would come of it. Any ideas or suggestions? Will it still produce eventually? Has anybody had any luck with this?

I just stuck a seed in the ground slightly covered and it grew into a small tree without any care. I am in 9b and the cold kept nipping it so I pulled it. It was in the wrong spot anyway. Guess I never expected it to grow. I thought of planting some of the new types that are more cold hardy but never did.

It takes a little time to grow them from their pits, but it's a basic second grade experiment. All grade school kids have success.

I got a few to grow, but they died when they got into a pot with soil.

There is one that survived. It's putting out leaves like crazy! They do love water, which is why they do just fine in pure water! Mine is on a drip system. We will transplant into the ground in spring on a drip system and add a couple more for polination!

Good luck!
