Avocado Tree Seed also known as Pear ,butter fruit, butter pear and laurel peach - 2 Seeds. Makes Great House Plant !

Planting your own avocado tree is fun and easy. It is a perfect task for all ages - for the garden, for indoors, and also makes a great project for class or at home!

STEP 1 - LOCATE WHICH END IS 'UP' AND WHICH IS 'DOWN'

Avocado pits are slightly oblong, Bottom (from where the roots will grow), and a 'top' (from which the sprout will grow). The slightly pointier end is the top, and the flat end is the bottom. In order to get your pit to sprout, you will need to place the bottom root end in water, so it's very important to figure out which end is the 'top' and which is the 'bottom' before you go piercing it with toothpicks.

STEP 2 - PIERCE WITH FOUR TOOTHPICKS

Take four toothpicks and stick them at a slight downward angle into the avocado seed, spaced evenly around the circumference of the avocado. These toothpicks are your avocado scaffolding, which will allow you to rest the bottom half of the avocado in water, so therefore the toothpicks need to be wedged in there firmly. I recommend sticking them in at a slight angle (pointing down), so that more of your avocado base rests in the water when you set this over a glass.

STEP 3 - PLACE AVOCADO SEED HALF SUBMERGED IN A GLASS OF WATER

set on a quiet windowsill with sunlight. It's helpful to use a clear glass so you can easily see when roots start to grow, and also when the water needs to be changed. Many guides recommend to change the water every day, but I found, through trial and error, that it is better to change the water every five days to a week or so. You do want to make sure you change the water regularly, to prevent mold, bacteria and fungus growth, which can doom your little avocado sprout.

STEP4 - WAIT FOR YOUR AVOCADO SEED TO SPROUT!

sprouting can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks, so be patient. Here is the process you will witness:

1. The top of the avocado pit will dry out and form a crack, and the outer brown seed skin will slough off.

2. The crack will extend all the way to the bottom of the avocado pit, and through the crack at the bottom, a tiny taproot will begin to emerge.

3. The taproot will grow longer and longer (and may branch), and eventually a small sprout will peek through the top of the avocado pit.

4. Do not allow your taproot to dry out unsubmerged EVER - doing so will be the death of your plant.

STEP 5 - POT IN SOIL WHEN TREE IS ABOUT 6" TALL

When the stem is 6-7 inches long, cut it back to about 3 inches, this will encourage new growth. When it hits 6-7 inches again, pot it up in a rich humus soil in an 8-10? diameter pot, leaving the top half of the seed exposed. Place on a sunny windowsill. Avocados love sun - the more sun the better.

STEP 6 - WATER & WATCH IT GROW

Give it frequent waterings with an occasional deep soak. The soil should always be moist, but not saturated. Yellowing leaves are a sign of over-watering; let the plant dry out for a few days.

STEP 7 - PINCH OUT TOP LEAVES TO ENCOURAGE BUSHINESS

When the stem reaches 12 inches tall, pinch out the top two sets of leaves. This will encourage the plant to grow side shoots and more leaves, making it bushy. Each time the plant grows another 6 inches pinch out the 2 newest sets of leaves on top.
