Avocado Tree From Seed

Avocado Tree From Seed

Growing an avocado tree from its seed is an exciting work for most gardeners. Although you can cultivate them in soil in your backyard, you can get a terrific observation for the whole growth process if you plant them into a transparent glass of water.

Before you put anything into the glass, you should carefully pick up the avocado which is most suitable for your garden. You need to do a thorough washing on the chosen avocado seeds to remove any flesh residues. In room temperature, you should fill a clean glass with a full cup of water.

You need to put the pointy side of the seed up and use four or five toothpicks to pierce through the middle part of the seed. Stab these toothpicks into the avocado seed until the remaining part is about one inch in length. The current seed should look like a plus sign or a five point star. Then you can put the seed on the rim of the glass. Remember to still keep the pointy side up and let the bottom of the seed merge into water.

You should put your avocado glass in a place with adequate sunlight during daytime. The water should be changes for every couple of days to be kept fresh. After several weeks, you can observe the newly grown roots, and the seed will split into two parts, indicating the further growth is approaching. When the seedling reaches several inches in height, it is the best time to move them into outside in your garden. Although it might take several years for an avocado tree to bear fruits for your family if you cultivate them from the scratch, it gains excellent gardening experience for you.
