Many might thing you just stick the avocado in dirt and it grows right? Not really... It takes water not dirt! Haha! So for those of you who are avocado eaters dont throw the seeds away! Grow them! Here are some tips!

Yeah, I've seen things before where you just put toothpicks in the seed to hold it like halfway in a glass of water...
If I had a place to grow one I probably would. I actually don't like avocado, but everyone else here does. Jackie, over at the pya, actually has them growing all over her neighborhood. She says they make a mess in the roads from people running over them. :lol:

people grow them as a houseplant sometimes, so you don't necessarily have to like them to grow one.

I'm not a fan of the green stuff... :lol:
But everyone else in the house likes it.

Hey, you should take pictures of your plant at various stages. That'd be neat.
