Growing an Avocado from Seed

My avocado tree is 6 months old now, its doing well and has become a part of my house. I started growing it from a seed to be a houseplant, however, I'm not sure whether or not it can be. (Do I have to plant it outside?) I would hate for it to not be doing well. Do I just need to get it a large pot or do I have to plant it outside?

It should be planted outside. Be aware that it could take many years for it to fruit.

Your tree will eventually need to be outside, in the ground. It's like a kid, you need to launch it gradually. This site has the easiest plan to prevent failure to launch...

The site is California based, so you may want to to contact your local home extension office and find the best launch method for your climate!

Enjoy!

Normally the tree should be planted in the ground. However, people have made avocado trees as houseplants. Many times a person will plant the seed to watch it grow. Unfortunately, not all seeds will produce fruit.

In order to tell if your tree is fruit bearing or not look at the main root of the tree. If it splits at the bottom and has 2 roots then it should bear fruit. Otherwise, it is a male tree and won't bear fruit.

it really depends on your climate. Unless you're in the California area or other temperate /dry climate, most likely your tree will die. Excess cold and excess humidity will affect it badly

It will be fun to keep in the house, however

It is actually up to you. You do not have to plant it outside, it likes the inside just as well. Do get a large pot for the roots to spread , it make s a lovely indoor plant.

If you live in a USDA zone lower than 8 then it is said your tree cannot survive outdoors - due to the cold weather as this is really a warm weather plant/tree.
