Growing an avocado seed in water.

  • We suspended the seed of an avocado in a jar of water using 2 paper clips. After a few days the outer brown skin disintegrated.

  • Then a small root appeared.


At 3 weeks

  • After 3 weeks the root was about 3cm long.


At 4 weeks

  • After 4 weeks the root was 7 cm long. We topped up the water regularly.


At 6 weeks

  • After 6 weeks the root had reached the bottom of the jar and a green shoot had appeared.


At 7 weeks

  • After 7 weeks the jar was too small and the root began to turn upwards.At this point we decided to place it in a pot.


At 10 weeks

  • After 10 weeks we had a plant 30cm high.
