What other plant parents say
Growing avocado plants from the pits I get from the store is one of my favorite random hobbies. It’s super easy to do, and I love how tall the plants get! Some quick google searches can basically mak…
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. 🥰
Really easy to take care of, and it’s fun watching them grow from a seed to a plant.
I know she probably won’t produce, but it is cool to watch it grow from a seed!!!
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 city 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.
