You will need
- Avocado, water, matches, or toothpicks, thin drill bit, earth, pot, cotton wool (gauze or cotton fabric).
Select ripe "alligatora pear". From the unripe fruit the seed will germinate! If you purchase too firm avocado, wrap a piece of fruit for a few days in the paper – it will ripen.
Carefully remove the delicate with a slight nutty flavor, buttery flesh of avocado. Good clean bone and wipe.
Cook in the pot substrate of earth, humus and sand. Put him in a bone, sticking her wide lower side. Bury it, not completely, but only one-third of the total size. Water in the pan abundantly in spring and summer, moderately in autumn and winter. After a couple of months will sprout.
To speed up the process use a pre-germination. Wrap the seed of the avocado in wet cotton wool, gauze, or cotton cloth, which is constantly wet. After some time – from two to four weeks, the bone will crack, the roots will appear. Plant it in a pot with soil suitable for avocado. Deeply bury.
Poractice the seed of the avocado in an open way. Drill in the bone at the middle of the three small holes approximately equidistant from each other. Insert in these holes three matches or toothpicks. Make the holes at a slight angle below the pit of the avocado did well on the sticks. They will serve by her side. Plant design on a glass of water. The wide face of the seed must be at the bottom. Maintain the water level. Bone needs a little touch of water. Few weeks from the seed of the avocado will sprout roots.
When roots will be quite a lot, and their length reaches 3-4 cm, put a bone into a pot with a diameter of 9 cm. do Not bury the seed completely. Cover the ground on a third. By this time, the upper side of the bone can already see the germ. Do not remove solid residues from the rind of a sapling. After a time, she will be pale pink, smooth and decorate the plant.
Tree grown to 10-15 cm, transplant to a larger pot. Keep the plant in a bright location but not direct sunlight.
Come up with a different design to maintain bone avocado. Most importantly, stick to the principle that the wide side of the bone needs to be in constant contact with water.
In winter, the plant may lose leaves, which will appear again in the spring.
