How to grow an avocado tree

  • 1 avocado pit
  • 4 toothpicks
  • 1 pot

- Dip the core in hot water between 35 and 40 ° for half an hour.

- Thoroughly clean the avocado kernel, push in 4 toothpicks, at equal distances from each other. Then put it in a glass filled with water; toothpicks should keep the core soaked halfway so that the rounded part stays in the air. Change the water of the glass when it becomes cloudy.

- Keep it away from the sun but in a warm place until the stem grows and the roots become visible. This growth can take from 2 to 6 weeks. Wait for other leaves to grow and the roots to reach 1 to 2 centimeters before planting the core.

How to plant the kernel?

In a large pot of plants, filled with nutrient-rich soil, put your kernel into it by making a small hole making sure the end of the seed is exposed to the outside.

How to take care of it ?

Once the avocado tree is planted, move it to a sunny spot in your home. Water the tree generously and regularly, ensuring that the soil remains moist but not saturated. If you notice that the leaves become dry and dark, it is that it is not hydrated enough. Then put your pot in the sink and let the water run down the sink to ensure drainage through the hole in the pot.

On the other hand, if the leaves become yellow and sag, it means that the tree is too wet. In this case, you must stop hydrating for a few days and reduce the amount of water in the future.

You have to be patient before the tree comes to fruition. In the meantime, have fun and say that gardening is the best therapy for anxiety and stress.

Tips for keeping the avocados :

If you happen to buy green avocados and not enough walls, you can ripen them to a good temperature by putting them in a brown paper bag. By adding an apple in the bag, you can speed up the process, since the apple will release ethylene that will ripen fruit quickly.
