How to Plant Avocados at Home for Dozens

Avocados are celebrated for their plethora of health benefits, from reducing cardiovascular risks and aiding in weight loss to promoting better digestion and acting as a potential shield against cancer. Growing them at home not only offers financial savings but also ensures you have a natural, organic supply of this nutritious fruit. Here’s a step-by-step guide to cultivate avocados in your own space.

Starting with the Seed:

Preparation: Begin with an avocado seed. Once you’ve enjoyed the fruit, clean the seed thoroughly.

Toothpick Method:

 Gently push four toothpicks into the seed, spacing them evenly around its circumference. These will allow the seed to balance on the rim of a glass or jar.

Water Immersion:

Fill a glass with water and set the seed atop, ensuring the pointed end faces upwards. The base of the seed should be submerged in about 3 centimeters of water.

Ideal Location:

Position the glass in a spot with warmth and ample sunlight. This encourages growth.

Nurturing the Seedling:

Waiting Game: Over a span of 2 to 8 weeks, the seed will start to sprout roots. Once a prominent root emerges, reaching around 15cm in length, trim it down to approximately 8cm.

Sprouting Leaves: Shortly after the root’s appearance, you’ll notice budding leaves.
