Hello, darlings! I come to you today with a post on how to plant a grocery store avocado. Planting it from the pit is very simple and usually takes hold. It is true that such a plant needs several years to bear fruit, even 6-8, but in the meantime it will be a very decorative home plant. Grown on the terrace or in the greenhouse, however, it certainly bears abundant fruit. Here are simple step-by-step methods to help you plant an avocado from the pit. Welcome to my quick post.
How to plant an avocado from a pit? Simple and fast step-by-step method:
Step 1: Choose the right avocado seed. Choose a healthy seed from a ripe fruit. Make sure the pit is clean and undamaged.
Step 2: Prepare the pit. Gently wash the avocado pit to remove any remaining fruit flesh. Be sure not to remove the dark brown crust.
Step 3: Insert the toothpick. Place the pit on a flat surface with the narrow end facing up. Carefully insert a toothpick or toothpick into the side of the pit, deep enough to hold it steady.
Step 4: Prepare a glass of water. Take a glass of water and fill it about 2/3 full. It should be room temperature water.
Step 5: Dip the pit into the water. Carefully place the pit in the water so that the toothpick rests on the rim of the glass and the bottom of the pit touches the water. Make sure the pit is submerged deep enough so that water can easily get to the bottom of the pit.
Step 6: Find a suitable storage location. Place the glass with the dipped avocado pit in a warm place, away from direct sunlight. It is important to maintain a stable temperature and avoid drafts.
Step 7: Maintain the proper water level. Check the water level in the glass regularly and refill it when necessary. The water should be high enough to touch the bottom of the pit, but not completely flood it.
Step 8: Wait and Watch. Now it remains only to wait. Within a few weeks, a root should appear, followed by a stem. However, this can take up to several months, so it requires patience.
Step 9: Repot the plant. Once the root and stem are well developed and the plant has a few leaves, you can repot it into a pot with a suitable substrate for potted plants. Provide it with the right growing conditions, including bright but not direct sunlight, regular watering, and the right temperature.
To sum up:
Remember that there is no guarantee of success when trying to plant an avocado from the pit. Some seeds may not germinate and some plants may not survive. However, with proper care and patience, you can enjoy your own avocado in the future. It is true that such a plant needs several years to bear fruit, even 6-8, but in the meantime it will be a very decorative home plant. Grown on the terrace or in the greenhouse, however, it certainly bears abundant fruit.
