Should I prune ? #Avocado
I saw online that I should prune the saplings once it reaches 6inches, I have yet to do that since I didn’t know that was a thing. And it’s growing so well πŸ₯Ίβ€¦ should I ?
2” pot without drainage
Last watered 2 days ago
I have not ever done that ... but I also have no avocados to show. (I have mangos.)
If you edit your post to include #Avocado, you'll reach folks who are growing them as well 😁
@sarahsalith oh yes of course πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ lol ty I meant to add that
So if you trim it you'll encourage your plant to branch out, rather than growing straight up...
How old is your plant?
@WickedValkyrie 4months old I think
@WickedValkyrie so should I ?
To be honest, I haven't cut mine yet, cuz I'm not emotionally ready, but technically you're supposed to do it when you're plant is around is around 6 inches tall ...
@WickedValkyrie ya that’s what I’m battling rn πŸ₯²
@WickedValkyrie and how much should I cut off ? Like just the tip ?
You should technically cut it around 12 inches to 6 inches. So about half way.
I think you can also prop the top but idk cuz I've never tried it...
@WickedValkyrie since you haven’t done yours, how is yours grown?
@WickedValkyrie wanna do it together πŸ˜…πŸ˜… it’s honestly so hard cuting the beautiful growth
@FabRubbercup I'm gonna cut my mind once my other experiments start actually growing... Lol
