My kids and I love growing plants from seeds we’ve collected and cuttings. And every so often we try to grown some plant or other from our vegetables. But alas, this usually fails. My pineapple plant rotted away before it became anything, carrots never sprouted and I’ve thrown out loads of avocado pits that just never did anything.
But then, shortly after seeing an avocado plant that my brother-in-law had managed to grow, I saw this Pin on Pinterest on how to grow an avocado plant from a pit. I decided to try just ONE more time, posting my progress as time went on on Instagram, and wouldn’t you know… it WORKED!!
This was actually the tutorial that inspired me to start my Pintastic! series, in which I review tutorials found on Pinterest and give my verdict as to whether or not they work. So, let me show you just how I managed to grow an avocado plant from a pit!
