Avocado pit rooting help needed

Midlife | Jul 21, 2010 01:02 PM

Simple thing any kid could do....... right? Stick toothpicks in an avocado pit and suspend it in water; scrape the 'root' end and cut into the pointy end. Change the water every few days. Wait.

It's been 3 weeks and absolutely nothing. Last time we tossed the pit after 6 weeks.

Any clue what we're doing wrong? Anything we didn't do that we could do?

TIA
