I am new here and I was looking up info on avocado seeds. I saw the
thread to this but can't seem to figure out how to reply to it as there
is not reply button. So, here is my question. I did the seed with the
point side up in water with the toothpicks. There is the white thing,
possibly the root, growing out the bottom of it. Isn't it supposed to
grow out of the top of it? Is my seed dyslectic...LOL Should I toss it
and start over or just turn it upside down?
no, the root is supposed to grow out of the bottom. it's
fairly common to grow a root before growing the stalk &
if you want to keep the avocado tree, you may want to put it
in a pot now so you won't be disturbing as much root as you
will if you wait. it can't live in a glass of water very long.
if you just want to see if you can sprout one, well, you did
& the leaves will be along shortly.
