And the last step is cultivation. To grow avocado you need a pot. This last step has to be done when the roots and the stem allow us to move it to another space, that is, when they are large enough for it. At the beginning, it would be good to leave the pot in a sunny space near a window.

In this way, following these steps, you can have an avocado tree at home.
