DIY Avocado Tree - How to Grow Avocado Tree From Seed
Today let’s talk about some different kind of DIY - plant baby, a project that took a year before coming to life!
I grew this indoor avocado plant from a seed to a tree (to be). By no means did I know if it was going to work to begin with, but I’m glad to see it’s working!!
Here’s what I did:
Step 1: Root. There are different ways to do it. The approach I took was to wrap the seed in a wet paper towel and left it in a sealed sandwich bag for 2 months/ or until the root comes out.
Step 2: Grow in water. Place the root in water and maybe with the seed half-submerged too. Wait for the seed to sprout. This can take couple of months depending on how much sun and heat your avocado gets. Sunlight is the key here.
Step 3: Pot in soil when the plant is 15cm tall or when water doesn’t provide enough nutrition. Use soil and planter with good drainage. And continue placing the plant under a lot of sunshine.
Here's what it looks like today! Isn't it magic?!
