Q.Should You Completely Cover Your Avocado Seed With Soil or Leave the Top Out

Zone akron ohio | bobbie added on November 13, 2011 | Answered

I’ve rooted an avocado seed. It’s growing, but should I have covered the whole seed with soil? Some of my leaves are curved at the end and some are straight. What should I do to have my leaves look straight like the ones in the pic? How often should I water it?

Leave a little of the pit out of the soil. The curved leaves usually indicate a watering problem. Water the plant when the top of the soil feels dry to the touch. This should clear up the curled leaves.
