Grow a plant from Avocado seed

Grow tree from Avocado seed

Avocado seed growth in Stockholm, Sweden

Anyone can grow an avocado plant from seed, all you need is a glass of water and some toothpicks (and an avocado seed of course!).  Victoria started her Avocado seedling in the middle of 2016 and has been tracking this plant on her instagram @very_stressed.

The advice she has from the process is that if you peel the brown layer from the outside of the seed, it will begin to sprout faster.

August 2016

Avocado seed was setup for growth, toothpicks in the side of the seed allows the seed to remain part submerged in the water.

15th August 2016: Original seed


24th August 2016: Some cracks showing on the seed


3rd December 2016: The seedling seemed dry and unhealthy, so the stem was cut down.  After this, a new, much healthier sprout appeared.  Seedling has since grown long roots, a stem and a leaf is unfurling


19th January 2017: Seedling now has two large leaves and more growing


2nd February 2017: Seedling now has significant root growth, two more leaves and continues to grow a lot taller

  1. I cut my first avocado seedling down, because it was getting really tall and spindly. I was hoping for something bushier. And now it seems to be sprouting a new branch lower down, which is exactly what I wanted!
