Well, we had a bit of a hot spell last week and just as I was about to give up on my first avocado seed (that has sat there and done absolutely nothing at all!) it split!


I think it was possibly the heat???  Or maybe just time, I don't really know.

But yeah, it split and I was super excited.  Except it split on the top half... which.. huh?

So I gave it a few days, thinking I'd likely have to throw it out for dead and maybe it just split with the heat and not in a good way but this morning I noticed it had a tiny little root growing out of the non split base, oooh!

So now I have two avocado seeds that may be doing something....

One is split on the bottom "half" and there's a root growing out of that bottom.  The other is split on the top "half" and there's a root that has now pushed itself through the non split bottom.

Kind of cool to maybe be getting somewhere with these guys!

Maybe it's a sloth avocado... is that a thing? ;)
