Got an #avocado that was already sprouted so I put it in water and well, I'm not entirely sure what it's doing but it's definitely doing some things... Lol The original sprout seems to be rotting but it has a couple new guys coming in... Not really sure what to do with it at this point. πŸ˜… #help #happyplants #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantaddict #unplannedplantbaby #newgrowth #socalgreg #wickedvalkyrie #avocadoexperiment #greatpothosexperiment #socalavocados
I would just leave it in water and see what happens πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ
@fabiana think I should try to remove the rotten one? Or just leave it and try to have some patience? πŸ˜…
@WickedValkyrie Yea definitely remove it since it already looks dead
@WickedValkyrie Which side did you have in water? I know the ortientation is specific for growing this seed
Was it upside down? This happened to me once when I had the seed upside down by mistake and didn’t realize. Still grew - just grew oddly and took longer.
@fabiana if you look one end is dark, that's the end I've had in water
@Dolly I have literally no idea lol
The avocado pit is producing roots, it's the right way up! πŸ™ƒπŸ˜‰
@WickedValkyrie 😭😭😭 it looks fine to me!
The roots should reach 5 inches before you move it to soil. I have an avocado tree from seeds in my office 🀣 and it is doing great, it is her 3 rd year of surviving indoor conditions
@Sassylimey @Dolly @sirokad thanks y'all! I'll just leave it be then... (:
If it’s producing roots just leave it in water! The rotted one might be gone but the new roots look great! Avocado seedlings are amazingly tough, if they are on water they can sustain almost anything. I put them in soil when a branch is a few inches long. Avocado trees also make really sweet bonsais 😎
