Avocando plant, help with seed

Posted by Wond_may none (My Page) on

I have planted an avocado plant from seed almost a year ago (indoor). Everything seemed ok besides some brown tips on some leafs.
However, I just noticed that one side of the seed goes seriously roten. I don't know what is wrong or what I can do to correct this...Watering should not be a problem..
Is it because I tried to pull the toothpick some weeks ago? Should I use a fertilizer? Maybe it needs to be covered with more soil?

Any advice would be helpful!
Thanks a lot

If it is that old then yes, it is well past time for it to have been planted in soil. See the how-to FAQ linked below.

Dave thank you very much for your responce!
But it's been already in the soil for months now. By "covered with more soil" I mean if I need to cover the seed more than 50% or something...
