What was even more weird was that this was inside a huge avocado fruit & it looked like a normal, but larger seed inside. I thought I'd take it home to grow, so decided to wash it, but the brown outer surface cracked open to reveal all these tentacles! 🐙 It was already growing inside the fruit! Maybe preparing for Halloween? 😁 @cyndi @kimguy @gjones @pelly @rachelbrooks

I reeeeeeally hope these are indeed plant roots and not some kind of avocado seed-eating worm..... 🤢

Getting creepier. Those tentacles are unfurling @cyndi but no sign of worms @sushiwaitress I think they are actually shoots, but time will tell. Just hope he's come in peace & doesn't get this mere earthling in the night! 🐙😁👽

If they do, they'll be in for a disappointment when they find just a lot of empty space 😂😂😂 @kimguy

Ha Ha. I was thinking just about the same thing. They will be confused in our brains, 'Plants, out of dirt, Fall, seeds, out of planters, bugs, rot, shovel, feed, worms,sunlight, Spring, Woo Hoo!' it gets pretty confusing in there!!!
