I am trying to germinate an avocado seed. And need some help. I have 4 avocados sitting in a ziploc bag over a heat source (1ft up) they are wrapped in paper towels. I have another avocado sitting just in a mason jar of water. No toothpicks just water. Question 1: will just sticking an avocado in a cup of water be okay? Question 2: does the stable heat really matter at the begginning stages of germinating avocado seed? Question 3: Will cutting the avocadoes bottoms help germination?
I will tell you my method, which works every time. The first step is to Slightly moisten a paper towel and wrap the seed in it. Place this in a ziplock bag, and put it in a dark drawer. Check it every couple of days until you see a root coming out, then plant it in the soil. This method is much easier than many others, and has worked for me %100 of the time.
