I have tried growing with seeds bought on Bay, NO luck or they were not fresh enough.
Anyone willing to sell me a cutting or throw me some fresh seeds?
I can easily email prepaid postage that you just print and tape on the package.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Avocado thread
« on: July 24, 2021, 06:18:45 AM »
Hi guys, in the fall of 2020, I bought an avocado fruit in the supermarket.I do not know the variety, country of origin and other details, when I ate it, I did not throw away the seed,and now it has grown like this. I have a question, what kind of variety can be grafted on this plant, so that it gives fruit if grown in a pot, and is it possible? Can someone sell me avocado cuttings to be shipped to Russia when the time is right? Regards!

I also planted a grocery store Hass seed.  About 5 years old, sits in my living room in the winter.  What should I try to graft so that I may possibly ever get a fruit?

GREAT information - thank you all

I did repot it immediately after I was told - a pot 2 times as large.
It is 3 feet tall now, I guess I could handle 10-12 feet (cathedral ceiling) as long as I can lift it.
I looked up my average humidity levels in jan/feb as 62% but thats outside - not sure what indoor heating does (forced hot air).

I would LOVE to have a grow room but there are so many things on that "want" list. And my partner is getting less patient with all of my tropicals indoors (lime, lemon, fig, bay leaf, Vanilla, avocado and Stevia), there is no chance of me getting away with a grow tent.....

while I have the attention of experienced/experts what is better summertime condition -

A.  Outdoors. 78 daytime/67 night with average humility about 70% and breezy
B.  Basically in the attic under a skylight.  About 5 degrees warmer, more consistent day/night temp, no breeze but a tad dryer. (where it is now and seems happy)

OK Rob, going to repot it today but can't do much about the humidity except I regularly mist it.

Grew from seed bought on Ebay, 3 out of 6 seeds germinated and only this one survived.  About 4-5 years old.  Living in zone 7a it is an indoor plant (i used to put it outside in the summer under canopy of bigger trees but it loves the heat of an attic bathroom closed off from the rest of the house.   In the winter its in my living room with the heat at 68 degrees daytime 60 night (I am frugal with heating costs).  It stays green in winter but no new growth.  Spring/summer it shoots up about 6" a year.  I would like a more compact shorter tree - can I drastically prune it - like half way?  And I would assume any pruning would be in the spring?   I have a Hass Avocado plant grown from grocery store fruit that I drastically pruned that put out side branches and filled out - but prob. will never get fruit so there was no risk.

I know the pot looks too small but I have checked and the root ball is small.
