@SikoMa @gjones my #avacado on the left has finally got a root starting. It looks a bit rude! 😁 The one on the right has just taken off the last 2 weeks and is growing leaves and more roots. Patience! 😁😁😁

@SikoMa and @gjones My #avocado seed is finally #sprouting on top. I have another one, different species that is doing nothing.

Is the one that hasn't sprouted an organic variety?

I don't think so @KariSamuel It was just a different shape and darker green

@KariSamuel I just like them so I don't look at the names. I will now. 😊

@gjones I think I planted it before Christmas. I posted it before when the root was tiny.

Wow! Mine never looked this good. Had a few spider web roots, but nothing this substantial😩😬. Is this in full sun?

@SikoMa It is on a window ledge North facing. My friend had one that didn't make it in a very bright hot window. 🤔

Try again @SikoMa. It will work. Peal the seed first. 🌱

@gjones I peal it and wash it straight away and put it in the water. Some grow in a few weeks and some after 6 weeks. All different. Good luck. 🌴🍈
