how to grow an avocado tree:

  • After using an avocado, save the pit for a future plant.
  • Using 3 – 4 toothpicks, stick them in the avocado pit.
  • Place in a jar or glass of water, so only the bottom of the point is in the water.
  • It may take a while for the foots to appear.
  • Once there are a fair amount of roots, plant in a pot and place in good bright light.
