I grow avocados as a hobby, they make nice house (unusual) plants
I think the secret is not to over water & water from below. I have yet to plant one out doors, but not sure if the weather here is right for them, I would welcome any comments .

I have been very successful in growing avocados from pit and have lived in many different states (Connecticut, New Jersey, California, and Florida). I never change my method. I stick toothpicks all around the pit pointy side up. I get a glass with water and put it hang prop it on the glass. I place it near my kitchen sink so I won't forget to add water when the water is not touching the bottom. When it gets a few good healthy roots at the bottom and it has a plant sprouting out, I put it in a pot full of soil and watch it grow. I currently have 5 trees in varying sizes (3 feet to 7 feet. In cold weather states I leave them in the pots and change it to bigger pots as it gets bigger and in Florida and California they were planted outside. I hope this helps anyone wanting to plant.
