Besides bearing delicious fruit that’s full of vitamin E, potassium and folic acid, it is possible to grow an avocado (Peresa Americana) from a hole to your lovely houseplant. The avocado is technically a tree, and takes at least 20 years to bear fruit, which means you’re probably going to have to relocate your houseplant before plucking any bounty to get homemade guacamole. Wash and germinate your avocado hole in the right environment to cultivate a beautiful, albeit uncommon, houseplant.
Eliminate the avocado’s pit and rinse it off under running water. Dry the avocado seed and add three to four toothpicks halfway down the pit side. Suspend the avocado pit over the glass by resting the toothpicks on the glass lip. Fill the glass until the bottom one-fourt of this avocado seed is submerged.
Set the glass in a warm place that’s away from direct sunlight. Refill the glass when required to maintain the first water level. Your avocado must sprout within fourteen days. If the seed doesn’t sprout after three months, toss it out and try again.
Proceed to refill the glass with water and track the avocado hole until the root shoots, which emerge before the stalks, are 2 to 3 inches long.
Remove the toothpicks and plant the avocado seed in a 10- to 12-inch diameter grass filled with well-drained, commercial potting soil. Plant the seed in order that the pointed end is flat with the top layer of the soil.
Maintain evenly moist soil and set the expanding avocado tree in an area that receives full sunlight. Feed the plant every 3 months with an all-purpose houseplant fertilizer.
