If you have a ripe avocado on hand, you have more than just a delectable and versatile fruit.
Step 1: Enjoy Avocado
The first step is to enjoy your avocado whichever way you prefer. I prefer guacamole.
Step 2: This Is the Pits
Now you may be wondering what you could possibly do with this pit because you don't have a compost bin so it just takes up space in your trash.
Step 3: Things You Will Need
If you have a small vessel of some kind (any kind will do) and toothpicks or small nails and water, you are ready to soak that pit until it takes root. ( a slide is missing here in which we see the root protruding from the bottom of the pit; will add as soon as it happens)
Step 4: Be Patient
After some weeks (don't forget to keep replenishing your pit's water dish) you will see the root and then you can plant it roots down in some soil. After some more weeks, a budding stick will appear protruding out the top of the pit.
Step 5: Please Continue to Be Patient
After more weeks still, your stick will begin to bud, though this is quite a leggy stick indeed. (don't forget to water your stick!)
Step 6: Ta-Dah!
After countless weeks, you will have a new house plant, which may never grow you an avocado to perpetuate the cycle of delectable fruit consumption, but it sure is a pleasant addition to your home.
