One day we went on one of these big shopping trips to buy groceries. We also picked up an avocado that we ate. Then we pierced the seed with three toothpicks. A month or two later a little root started to appear. Now its on its journey to become an awesome tree ;)

I got back from a long trip. The avocado tree survived, but its a bit struggling. It probably didn't like the 15 °C that was in the house until I was away... Now Im back and the temperature is back above 20 °C, so there should be some improvement in the next weeks, although I don't expect much growth until summer is back when I can put the small tree outside again.

I took the little tree inside for winter. Also I will be leaving her here for 3 months as I'm leaving the country. Hopefully she will survive just fine.

Pretty big leafs. The stem is starting to thicken as well. Seems that it likes its place because the leafs are very close to each other on the stem.
- Or maybe its because the pot is starting to get small?

Another set of leafs appeared. It is growing very fast actually, even though it only receives sunlight for 1-2 hours in the morning.

The first time I took pictures was when the avocado was already in the pot, so the first image is not this plant,but this one looked very similar to it. The other two images are the first ones taken with just maybe a couple of days difference.
