Growing The Avocado As A Houseplant
Believe it or not, it is possible to grow this in your home as a houseplant. You grow it from its pit from ripe fruit, unrefridgerated. First you stab the poor pit three to four times with tooth picks about one-third from its flat end, then you place the pit in a jar or a vase containing water. Four to six weeks your pit should sprout roots and a stem, if not the pit is discarded but do not give up trying again. Once the stem is a few inches in length, place in a pot with soil and water every few days.
