Here is my final update before the contest closes...the avocado tree has been a success! It has been growing at a rapid rate now over 6" tall! It has leaves now too! How exciting, I am very pleased!!!
Yes definitely! I remember doing this with paper mache years ago...many years ago lol and what a blast for sure!
It is May 20th and the avocado tree is coming along nicely at a proud 3 1/4" tall!!!
Thank you! That was the best part of the project lol my four year old was so amazed!
What a great idea! It looks like the kids had fun, I like your wife's cake, I had attempted one of those a few years ago...it wasn't pretty lol
They actually look pretty good, I think I should try this with my kids, I bet they would think it's cool!
It's been a week since I posted my last update and that was when I could see the top of the tree beginning to sprout, now it's about an inch past the pit, it's coming along nicely.

The avocado root got about two inches long and I made the decision to put it in soil a week ago. It has been thriving well. You can now see the top of it sprouting out which has a reddish hue to it!
I had already noted in my steps about changing the water and the poster had asked how long it took "my" avocado to germinate...not how long "it usually takes". But thank you for trying to "add" to my project...
This looks so yummy and I will be trying it soon. I will let you know my results. Thank you for sharing a unique recipe!
Here is an updated image from my original post. I am really excited to see some true growth!
It took about three weeks...funny you ask because today I used an avocado for a hair mask that was super ripe and the pit was already split with a root! So I have it soaking in water right now to peel it easier and I'm going to try and grow it. I really hope for great results from this project and will definitely keep posing updates too.
