being a typical millennial, i have tons of houseplants. Here's an avocado plant I've been growing



I have a lot more plants as well. I have a balcony now and between the balcony and just around the house I probably have like 20 plants

I have lots of plants on my balcony, seem to be the only one in the complex growing anything. Will post pics later.

Do avocados grow in the soil like that? How often does it yield you one? Do you grow anything else you can eat?

You have to sprout the seeds, there are tons of guides about how to do that on the internet. I was probably sprouting it for like 3 or 4 months before I put it in the soil, but I probably could have done that earlier. After you pot it then it just grows like a normal plant. However it is actually a tree and if it were outside and grew great etc then it would still take like 5 or 10 years for it to make avocados. So this is just meant to be a houseplant and I'm gonna prune it to encourage it to grow small and bushy instead of really tall and skinny like it would if it were planted outside.

Do you guys know about pruning a plant to make it grow fatter instead of taller? All my experience is based on growing weed and to make a weed plant do that, I always tied the end down so it made a bow shape. Then buds would grow out of the bow shape because it was the tallest part of the plant. I thought about doing that for this plant but I don't think I want some kind of hunchback of notre dame avocado plant

My mom used to have rose bushes in the backyard so I learned to prune those but I think the process is different probably since our goal was more flowers and not bushiness.

I think with most plants you just cut the tops off to encourage it to grow sideways instead. That's what I read you do with tea trees to make them tea bushes.

Sweet. What are they, anything interesting? Only thing I ever grew like that was from a cutting of a nice basil plant my mom had.

I've been away from home a few days, coming home tomorrow hoping my plants survived. It's been really hot at home so it could be bad. MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS
