A friend gave me an avocado growing "kit" at the end of August as a housewarming gift. I loved it! Surprisingly, I have never grown avocado like this before and was excited about trying it out.
She had poked three small sticks evenly towards the top of the avocado seed with the biggest part of the avocado pointed down. This kind of looks like a medieval torture setup.... but she said it works and the seed feels no pain :) The seed was then placed on top of a mason jar filled with water so that the bottom of the seed was covered just a little bit.
This growing medium requires changing the water each day and waiting. Well, after about 2 weeks, I was kind of tired of changing the water every day and seeing no progress. So, I decided to plant the seeds in some dirt and see what happened. I left the top of the seed showing and waited. After about two weeks, I noticed the seeds splitting and one of them already had a shoot growing through the middle. Awesome!
The shoots are both about 4 inches tall now and they are ready for grown up pots!
