Video: Planting your germinated avocado seed in a pot.

When the roots of your germinated avocado seed reach 3 to 4 inches in length, it is time to transplant your little avocado plant to a pot or growing container! An 8 to 10 inch growing container is recommend to start out with. To get started, fill your pot half way up with a mixture of one part potting soil and one part peat moss. Using this mixture makes a lightweight soil that promotes aeration and allows for adequate drainage. Position the avocado seed on top of the soil so that the roots spread evenly. Take your soil mixture and fill in around the roots until your potting soil is even with the top of the seed. Gently pat the soil to firm it up around the seed, take care not to damage the roots. Saturate the soil until water runs out of the bottom of the pot. It is important to keep the soil moist but not soggy. Water at least 2 to 3 times a week or more when the soil is not moist to the touch. Now place your potted avocado plant in a sunny place and wait for the magic to happen!
