I have tried growing an avocado tree a few times and have finally had some success. I started this one in May and potted the little tree yesterday. The process has taken patience and a bit of faith. As my friend Debbie put it, when I sent her a photo of the first leaf, there is perseverence to be found here– as is often the case with nature.


Here are a few tips that I did figure out with my tree:

  • Change the water once a week to prevent mold
  • Use toothpicks! Don’t get too creative when suspending the pit
  • Needs moderate sunlight
  • Don’t give up!
