  • Place the avocado seed inside the basket and in the glass so that it germinates:
    The avocado seed is generally oval, although there are also round ones, in any case the important thing is to identify the side where the roots will come out and where the plant will emerge. The seed has a smooth and reduced part that goes up where the plant will come out and another flat and flattened part with a slit that goes down, which is precisely where the roots will come out, this part is the one that will make contact with the water inside the glass:
