When I transplanted my avocado from their little jars of water into soil, I had to split the pits to get them out of the jars (note for future reference: make sure the mouth of the container is not narrower than the rest of it!). I wasn’t sure if they would survive the transplanting.
Well, they have!
They are now big enough to prune back to 6 inches or so (as I’ve read needs to be done).
I had added more pits directly to the soil to see if they would root like that – just in case these ones didn’t make it – so even though this pot is designed to provide water from below, I am surface watering the pits as well.
I am determined to grow an avocado tree. 😀
