Hello, darlings! I come to you today with a post about how to plant an avocado in the ground in a pot, bought at the grocery store. 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.

Recently, I wrote about the method of planting Avocados by soaking the pit and extending the roots. How to plant an avocado from a pit? A simple tutorial
This is a very effective method, but quite lengthy. Not everyone knows that there is also a method of planting an avocado pit directly into the ground, if the skin of the pit is soft and bright, not brown, and the fruit is very young. Here is a simple step by step method:
Step 1: Choose the right seed. Choose a healthy seed from a ripe avocado. Make sure the pit is clean and undamaged.
Step 2: Prepare the pit. Gently wash the avocado pit to remove any remaining fruit pulp. Remember not to remove the soft crust.
Step 3: Choose a pot or place to plant. Choose a suitable pot or place in the garden where you want to plant the avocado. Make sure it provides adequate soil drainage.
Step 4: Plant the seed. Insert the avocado pit into the ground to a depth of about 2-3 centimeters. Make sure the soft crust is facing up.
Step 5: Water the soil. Lightly water the soil around the pit, but not excessively. The soil should be moist, but not flooded with water.
Step 6: Find a suitable storage location. Place the pot with the planted avocado pit in a warm place, away from direct sunlight. Make sure the plant gets enough sunlight, but avoid overexposure.
Step 7: Maintain the right level of humidity. Regularly check the soil around the pit for moisture and water it as needed. It’s important to keep the humidity even, but avoid overwatering, which can lead to root rot.
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 larger pot or garden if you have the right conditions for growing avocados outdoors.
How to plant an avocado? 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.
