Our avocado seedlings are known for their exceptional fruit set, earlier maturity time, and moderate resistance to illnesses that frequently impact avocado production.
This cultivar is excellent for tropical climates and is easily adaptable.
Continue reading for advice on how to maximize your investment in avocado cultivation.
Requirements for planting
Light: direct, full sun
moderate to high humidity
Soil: Keep moist.
Shape: Pinch back top leaves to encourage new side shoots Fertilizer: preferably 7-9-5
60° to 85°F (16° to 30°C) is the average room temperature.
Care for plants
Put your avocado plant somewhere warm and sunny.
Drink lots of water and occasionally take a long soak. Keep the plant wet but not soggy. Make sure the soil drains effectively, as you would with other plants.
Every time your plant grows another six inches or so, pinch the stem back to promote a bushier appearance.
When your tree is big enough, if you live somewhere warm enough, put it outside.
Advice for growing seedlings
Keep in mind that avocado trees thrive in conditions with moderate humidity and moderately warm temperatures (60 to 85 F).
Since immature avocado trees don’t absorb water very well, there is always a chance of sun damage if you plant during the summer.
If possible, plant it away from sidewalks, in a non-lawn area, and in a location shielded from wind and frost.
Since the avocado root system is so delicate, extra care should be taken during transplanting to avoid upsetting it.
However, if the tree is encircled by roots, loosen the soil around the margins and cut the roots that are growing in a circular motion.
Avocado trees prefer soil with a pH between 6 and 6.5.
Two to three times a week is usually enough to water a tree.
After a year, irrigation can decrease to once a week when the roots spread out into the bulk soil and require more moisture.
After giving the tree a good soak, let the soil air out a bit before giving it another drink.
