To shape my trees I have cut the upper leaves - the result is new branches and more leaves :-)!!! Fantastic!

You can motivate yourself for other plants by following my progress here :)

The Avocado Legend
The pairs of avocados is a symbol for love. A pair of avocados represents each person in a couple, living and growing together on a tree. The avocado tree lives for hundreds of years, keeping their love alive as long as the tree is growing. In Colombia, a man often picked two avocados and gave one to his wife as an outward display of love for his partner.

3. It's now time to plant the young avocado tree. Place enriched potting soil in a large flowerpot. Fill the soil to about an inch from the top of the pot. Make a small depression in the center of the soil and place the pit, root-side down into the depression. Don't put it too deep...you want to have the upper half of the pit above the soil line. Add some more soil around the pit to fill in any air holes by the roots and then firm it into the soil by gently pushing the soil around the base of the pit. The tree's stem and leaves should be straight and pointing up.

2. Place the container with the seed in a warm location with indirect light. Change the water in the container at least once each week for the next 15 days.
In about three to six weeks the top of the avocado pit will begin to split and a stem sprout will emerge from the top and roots will begin to grow at the base. When the stem grows to about five or six inches pinch out the top set of leaves. In another two or three weeks new leaves will sprout and their will be more roots.

1. Poke three to four toothpicks into the avocado seed. Space them equally around the top and insert them horizontally into the seed, pushing them in just enough to hold the seed in place for the next step.
Fill a small container with water, placing the seed onto the top of the container. (Let the toothpicks rest on top of the container to suspend the seed in the water.)
