Should I plant it in soil?
I’ve been growing this avocado for months (yes, months, the B**** is slow). And now it has these 2 dramatic roots growing in this direction. Should I wait until it grows a stem? Or should I plant it in soil already?
In the second picture you can see how I’d like it to grow: I want to plant the seed horizontally (yes that’s happening hahahaha) and maybe leave a bit of the roots exposed so that they harden into bark, and the rest keeps on acting as a root system. Do you think the roots would die if a small part of them are exposed?
Avocado bonsai update
Hi again! Remember this avocado? You asked me to post back and I’d like to give an update on how it’s going!
The seedling is growing great, the roots are growing white and long into the soil. It’s startling to take off.
The part that I would like to leave exposed as I mentioned in my last post, is, nevertheless, a bit brown. I will attach a disgusting picture. I read online that it’s normal that avocados get a bit of browning on the roots but this seems a very sketchy claim. But yeah, I’d like to know your opinion about it and what further steps I should take.
The plants seems to be doing great tho, and I water it every 10 days more or less.
