Simple Steps to Grow Avocado From Seed
Cut an Avocado in half. Pop the Avocado Stone out. Wash it thoroughly so that there is nothing attached to it. Use 3 toothpicks to suspend it, broad end down, over a water-filled glass to cover about an inch of the seed.
Put the glass in a warm place out of direct sunlight and replenish water as needed. You should see the roots and stem start to sprout in about 2-6 weeks. Be careful when transplanting. Continue scrolling and see the results some of our followers have achieved.
