About a year and a half ago I left an avocado pit in a bowl of water for no reason in particular. A few weeks later I noticed it had cracked open and a shoot was poking out. I let it grow and kept the bowl full of water until it was a couple inches out of the pit. Then I planted it in a pot and let it grow.
Since then it has died and been resurrected twice. Once through the violent actions of a squirrel, and once through neglect. I like my little avocado plant. Has anybody else had a similar experience in growing one?
