Really good if you are up for a challenge! Was fun to grow from a store bought avocado in lockdown. Browns easily and quite difficult to balance the right amount of sunlight. Very easy to over water!…
This plant was started from an avocado seed about 8 years ago. I have brought it outside for the past two summers but the leaves show how little care it received a few weeks
Started as a seed and now it’s becoming a tree, all I did was keep it in nothing but water, after it started to grow leaves and a strong body I placed it into soil. 🥰

How to care for Avocado
Avocado needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Avocado may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Avocado in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Avocado after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
