#avocadoexperiment🥑 update!!

"HAASta-la-vista" (Exp. 01) is still doing fantastic! He has three new leaves and is working on a fourth. He's well over due for a pot and a haircut, but I'm not emotionally ready yet... Him and his #goldenpothos buddy are still getting ≈50/50 filtered water + #mycorrhizalfungi concentrate and a splash of #foxfarmgrowbig fertilizer. Either 25% or 50% strength, depending what's on hand at the moment. (Usually 25.)

"Waterboy" (Exp. 02) has actually pulled ahead of the yet unnamed Exp. 03 in the sprout game and got upgraded to his big boy jar today! He has been receiving nothing but plain filtered water and once his wee baby tree sprout gets a few inches tall I'll start introducing fertilizer...

Exp. 03 and his pothos buddy also got their big boy jar today as his tap root was officially touching the bottom of the lil cup he used to be in. He has yet to fully sprout, tho if you look real close (pics in comments) you can see there is actually a sprout in their, it's just being shy right now... He also only gets plain filtered water at the moment.

"Eggy" (Exp. 04) has yet to show any signs of life, but I did recently give him a bunch of pothos friends to help him out. He's getting ≈50/50 filtered + #pothoswater to help his pals root and once they do I'll switch him back to just plain water. (He earned his name because he currently reminds me of the egg in vinegar experiment we did in school. Lol)

"Thomas" (Exp. 05) got some cinnamon treatment today as his top soil had started growing some white mold. Otherwise he looks fine. I forgot to take his goblet hat off for a few days, so it was likely my fault he has this uninvited guest living with him now... When he needs it, he gets ≈50/50 pothos water + filtered.

@LatiTish84 I'm really having fun with them! And when they're babies they come in, in the most gorgeous shades of pink maroon and green! And the leaves are so very smol at first but then before you know it, they start getting dark green and the size of your hand! Lmao
Ooohhh!! Yeah I gotta go to the supermarket today 😂😂 @WickedValkyrie
Hehe yaaass! @LatiTish84 lemme know if you have any questions! And, of course, if you go to #avocadoexperiment #greatpothosexperiment you can see all my posts about this journey! (:
Thank you!! 💚
@LatiTish84 I gotchu! 🙃🖤
Oh that's so cool! We have one already outside. It is still in a pot but growing a lot! And i just used tap water, never thought about anything else. Good luck with the experiment!
This is awesome, I was never ever able to grow one. I gave it 3 tries to no avail.
@KikiGoldblatt what happened to that one you had shown me?? It looked like it was growing?? 🥺
