Growing Seeds in a Bag

Posted | 0 comments

If you have ever tried growing an avocado seed in a cup of water, this post is for you.

Here’s our avocado.

This is the traditional method.

Insert 3 toothpicks into the seed, then place the seed in water

Here’s the other method which I think is great-

Wrap the bottom of the seed in a paper towel or
brown paper bag.

Moisten the paper.  Insert the seed in the plastic bag,
close the bag, and then tape it to a window that gets plenty of sun.

Now you just wait and watch

On the right hand side is a seed that has already
sprouted.  On the left had side is a new seed.

You never have to worry about adding water because the
moisture stays in the bag, giving the seed the constant
water it needs.

By the way, I’ve done this with Mango seeds also and have a cool Mango tree now growing in a pot.

Til the next time!
