This will be my first post talking about plant/gardening here on the blog !!! Ihuuu
And I'm very happy to share one of my passions with you !!! But for those who do not know me, returning to my childhood, I lived in the countryside at this island in the south of Brazil, with many trees and farms around my house.
Also when we moved to our current home my father planted many fruit trees. Jabuticabeira, papaya, avocado, pintangueira, guava, hose, and even carambola !!! I would always get off my feet and eat. Based on this, I had the opportunity to grow appreciating nature in its purest essence. Thanks Dad!
You will need only 5 things to germinate your seed:
1 avocado seed
1 pot with lid
1 paper towel
A few drops of hydrogen peroxide
Don't forget to follow the step I commented above
Peel off the seed gently and then with the above material, place into the vase wrapped in the wet paper towel. Be sure to look all week, including to see if you need to save water. The seed must always be wet.
Change the water every couple of days, never let water run out (the root that is just growing needs to be submerged, always)! After 2-3 weeks the tree part will be large. From there you can switch to a vase with a good height but with a small mouth, see the first photo above to see how I am leaving mine. Finally, the branch begins to grow, but keep in mind that it is a process that depends on the type of seed you are using and the weather. Change the water weekly.
One very important thing: Write down the date the process began.
If you want you can also plant in the soil after the root is born. Now that the new technique has worked, I will definitely separate one to plant in a vase with soil! I'll be back for some news!
