Last December, I made a dish requiring one avocado. Not wanting to toss the beautiful seed away, I ended up with a popular classroom experiment of sprouting the avocado seed in a jar of water. Making this one of my many on-going experiments.
It took about two months before I see any sign of life, a.k.a. roots. Another two weeks for a bit of green to show up. This morning, I transferred the spouted seed to a bigger container filled with potting soil. The experiment has now moved on to the next level. I do hope that baby avocado will grow. Fingers crossed!
