Very difficult to maintain once potted. When growing from seed, wrapping in wet paper towel in a sealed plastic bag is more effective than putting in a cup of water.

Pit germinated without any warning was not trying to propagate it. So he’s an unexpected guest. He’s too popular with pests outside. Likes some light not too much, Should cut him back to broaden his foliage but I can’t bring myself to do it. It’s a nice plant if you enjoy doing something from birth that can last a long time if you care for it. Cats admire him too he’s been nibbled on occasion. 🤔

Make sure to take a look at the leafs and feed it water soluble fertilizer accordingly.

I started it in water for 4 months, until it got to my desired hight. Then I put it in soil and it instantly grew 6 new leafs! The leafs are a gorgeous colour and size and it definitely inspired me to experiment with propagation and growing from fruits.

I transplanted my avocado tree 4 days ago and it's going down fast! 😪 I blame the shipper who basically used a blooming seed wrapped in paper thru the post office, which is notoriously difficult and slow. I'm hoping to save it even though a replacement is coming?
