The best way I found to do this is to scrap off some of the bark at the end of your branch. Now get a rooting compond that they sell at store. It can be liquid or powder. Dip the branch in the powder and cover it. Now plant the branch in soil. You will need to remove the leaves from the branch. Now keep this in a shady spot and keep it watered. You should water it each time the soil is dry. Normally every other day is when I water mine.

A fun way to grow an avocado is from the stone

You simply put it in water and watch it root. As soon as the root outgrows the water receptacle, you can transplant to soil.


YOu can have a nice sapling in as soon as 6 months
