To plant, fill the pot half way with potting mix and gently place the seed in the pot.  Handle with care so the roots do not break.  While steadying the seed, gently press down the potting mix and add more as needed, leaving the top inch of the seed above soil level. The plant stem will grow from there.  Water (room temperature distilled water) until moist, not damp. Top up the potting mix as needed.  Place in warm, draft-free location with strong, indirect light. Or that’s the ideal.

8-inch flower pot with drainage holes (for a 2-inch avocado seed) indoor potting mix for houseplants Avocadoes like good drainage so you can also amend the potting mix with perlite or sand if you like. Can you tell the top of your seed from the bottom? The top is (usually) tapered or pointy. The bottom is often broader and flat with a round, scaly marking. The roots will (usually) grow out the bottom). We plant the sprouted seed with the bottom and roots aiming down into the pot.
