Experiment 7 - Avocados
This experiment is a classic. We always seem to have an abundance of avocados around the house, so I decided to use a couple of the leftover pits and place them in water to see if they would grow into trees.
● Grow a tree from the recovered pit of an avocado.
1. The pits used in the experiment must be reclaimed from ordinary, store-bought avocados.
2. Any means of caring for the plants is acceptable.
3. There is no timeline for this experiment; it will be concluded only when it is believed subjectively that enough data has been collected.
