Sprouting an Avocado Seed?

I am trying to sprout an avocado seed. It has a 3 inch root but hasn't done much since it grew the root about 3 or 4 weeks ago. Should I keep waiting for a sprout?


Thank you

The root sprouts pretty fast. The stem that will have leaves takes longer to show. Be patient, keep the roots in water or damp soil, give bright light, and it will eventually grow the stem up top as the pit starts to split.

Have fun waiting, and be proud when it shows you it's leaves. Good luck !!!

I love growing avocado trees but usually give them away when they start with leaves.
I've noticed they do not all grow roots and sprouts the same time period but if you have it setting where it's getting lots of light (no direct sun) it should be sprouting soon.


You can check out how to set it up and what to watch for on the link. You should see more activity soon.

This is a growing project commitment ! There are many steps to growing and getting your tree to maturity for fruit , which is after at least 5 years of growth in the best conditions. To grow from seed you need to place in water, and direct sunlight indoors(bright window sill is best) Keep water fresh for 2 to 5 weeks until roots appear.
