Avocados are easy to grow from seed using this simple method. Just arm yourself with lots of patience.

The fact that avocado is easy to grow from seed is well known and sufficiently documented online, but I still couldn’t resist adding my own version. To suspend the seed so that it’s bottom touches water, most people use toothpicks, while I opted for a pair of unused gift miniature party forks that I frankly didn’t know what to do with.

After what seemed like forever (about 3 months), the avocado on the right suddenly came to life, it split in two, and sprouted two roots and a little green shoot (see photo on the right). If it survives, I might later re-plant it into a regular pot and give it as a present to a friend.

Although the seedling probably uses nutrients stored in the seed, I’ve added a tiny amount of hydroponic nutrient into the water to make it grow faster.
