The process of growing Avocado is surprisingly very easy, just follow these simple instructions:

2. Pierce the seed
Note that some of the avocado seeds are little bit oblong, that means some area are shaped just like a sphere. Also that all of the seeds that the avocado has have a bottom side and there is where there roots will start to grow, on the top side is the place where the sprout will appear. The bottom side is a little bit flat and the top is slightly pointier. In this order the next step is to place the bottom side in the water. It’s extremely important about which side is top and bottom, before you pierce with toothpicks.
3. Soak the seed in water
As we mention when the piercing process is done, put the bottom side of the avocado in the water and the toothpick should be wedged in the seed firmly. Our recommendation is to place them in at a slight angle pointing down. In this way, more of your avocado base rests in the water when you put it over the glass.
4. Let the seed sprout
Now that the procedure has started 3 to 6 weeks is the time for the top side of the avocado to split. And now what happens next the stem sprout will emerge from the top and roots will begin to grow at the base. When the stem grows to approximately 5 or 6 inches, you need to pinch out the top set of leaves. Few weeks will pass and new leaves will sprout and more roots also.
5. Trim the sprout
You will know when to trim it in half so it will promote new growth when the sprout tail reaches 6 to 7 inches.
6. Prepare to plant
The final process is to put some enriched potting soil in a large flower pot 8 to 10 inches (across) and fill the soil 1 inch from the top of the pot where the flower is located. Next you need to make small depression in the center of the soil and plate the avocado seed, root-side down into the soil. The soil require a proper watering. Water it very often that the soil feels moisty all the time. This is a smart and simple technique don’t be afraid to try it.
