How to plant avocado at home

The avocado (Persea Americana) is a tree native to South and Central America, appreciated for centuries for the goodness of its fruits. A plant that requires a tropical or subtropical climate to grow at its best but which, with due care, can also be grown in Italy. Unlike other species, the cultivation of avocado is particular because it involves germinating the seed in water and only after some time transferring the plant into a pot, let’s see how it’s done.

To get started, get: a ripe avocado seed, cleaned of pulp and washed toothpick a container waterfall Start by inserting the toothpicks around the circumference of the seed, so that the ends can rest on the edges of the container and the stone remains at half height. Fill the container with water until the base of the seed (the less rounded end) is immersed, then move the vase to a sunny position, such as in front of a well-exposed window. Avocado takes 2 to 6 weeks to germinate, in this period all you have to do is add water if necessary and wait for nature to take its course.
