I would just plant it in the backyard and water it!

Poke 4 toothpicks into the avocado pit, about halfway from the biggest part of the pit. Find a jar with a mouth big enough for the avocado pit. The toothpicks should balance the pit over the mouth of the jar. Now fill the jar with water so the bottom of the pit is soaking in the water. Keep the bottom of the avocado pit soaking in the water until a sprout emerges from the top of the seed.


I warn you, this can take months to happen. Just keep putting more water in the jar as it evaporates, making sure to always keep the bottom of the pit in water. Once the pit sprouts, keep it in the jar and water until the sprout is about 6 inches tall, then you can plant it in dirt. This makes a nice plant/small tree, but it won't produce more avocados. Have fun.

Truthfully you can skip that step (germinating the seed). Avocados have hearty seeds, simply put them in the dirt. Depending on the size of your pot you can even put three or more seeds to the same pot, close together they will give it a fuller affect.
