Yeah, I've seen things before where you just put toothpicks in the seed to hold it like halfway in a glass of water...
If I had a place to grow one I probably would. I actually don't like avocado, but everyone else here does. Jackie, over at the pya, actually has them growing all over her neighborhood. She says they make a mess in the roads from people running over them. :lol:

people grow them as a houseplant sometimes, so you don't necessarily have to like them to grow one.

I'm not a fan of the green stuff... :lol:
But everyone else in the house likes it.

Hey, you should take pictures of your plant at various stages. That'd be neat.
