PLENTY OF SUNSHINE

Avocado plant was originally a subtropical fruit native to South America, they thrive best in warm conditions in the temperature range of 60-85 F (15-29 C) with average humidity and bright sunlight. Avobabies love to be in sunny spots, the indirect natural light that pours onto a windowsill is most ideal for feeding the growing avobabies.

REPLENISH WATER AS NEEDED

Evaporation happens rapidly especially in the summer, make sure to never let the root dry out and best keep the whole root submerged in water. Check the water level once or twice a week. Add fresh, tepid water all the way up top of the container.

CHANGE THE WATER EVERY 1-2 WEEKS

Changing the water is not necessary but encouraged. If the water is murky or shows signs of algae, we recommend cleaning the container and changing the water for the health of your avobabies’ growing root system.

PRUNING

Avobabies’ natural, unpruned growth habit typically grows into a single, spindly stem. If you want to encourage a thicker stem and bushier appearance for your avobabies, pruning, as scary as it may seem, can be very important. When it reaches 6 to 8 inches in height, remove half its height to prompt the plant to branch out. When each new branch reaches 8 inches, pinch off each growing tip to encourage a second round of branching. Continue this process until the plant achieves the desired fullness.

TRANSPLANTING TO SOIL

Avobabies can actually stay happy in water for months! However, when they start growing a complex root system and show signs of nutrient deficiency (such as the leaves turning yellow, the tips going brown, or they start curling up), that’s your cue to transplant them into the soil. Transplant your avobabies in well-draining soil in a pot about ten inches in diameter with drainage. Position your avobabies so that the roots spread out in the soil while leaving half the seed still exposed above the soil.

ONCE IN SOIL . . .

Avobabies in soil needs watering every 5-7 days, water thoroughly until water runs freely through the bottom of the pot. Keep soil moist, but not soggy.
