How to Grow an Avocado Tree from Seed

All you have to do is extract, carefully, the seed from a mature and ripe fruit and clean it thoroughly from pulp debris. You can use a fine toothbrush or you can clean it carefully with your hand. It is important to note that the seed should not present injuries.

Then, with the help of wooden chopsticks, the seed must be suspended above a glass of water-a third of it must be in the water. The last step is the establishment of the glass in a bright and warm place, but away from direct sunlight. Periodically, the water level must be completed. Normally, between two and six weeks, the seed should develop root and strain.

After the strain has grown sufficiently and the first two leaves appear, the stem must be cut from half and left to grow again. Thus, the crown of the plant will be richer. After this period, it is put in a pot with well-weighted and drained soil and is preserved in a warm place. If you move it to the garden, make sure you move it back into the house when temperatures are less than 12 degrees Celsius.
