Do you like avocado? Would you like some undemanding – and beautifully green – plants in the house?
Here’s an idea for a low budget home decoration: grow an avocado tree. This how-to shows you the easiest way to grow an avocado plant from a pit.
How To Grow An Avocado Tree
If you check out the web, you’ll find a lot of intricate details as to how to keep the pit moist while not immersed into water. Toothpicks and all. Pins, gadgets and holders of all kinds, used to hold the pit above the water.
Well, there’s an easier way.
I wanted to see if a totally ‘lazy’ way of growing an avocado tree would work, too.
And it totally does!
When planting the avocado pit, I do something that no professional will recommend: I place the pit directly into the pot. No piercing the pit, no balancing it above the water level.
Steps To Grow Avocado From the Pit
– I just dig a hole into the soil of one of the pots I keep on the balcony
– place the seed in it,
– NOTE: the pointed end of the pit needs to be up and not entirely covered by soil.
Water it regularly for several weeks.
A few weeks later, you’ll notice it sprout. And you’ve just got yourself a beautiful plant. That’s it!
I’ve been doing this for several years now and just love them.
Growing an avocado tree is so easy you just have to try! The next time you are slicing an avocado for a salad, save the pits to grow into avocado trees and let me know how it goes.
