Grow an Avocado Tree from the pit (for a houseplant, it probably won't produce fruit). After drying, the pit is suspended in a glass of water and once there is root growth of about 2″, it can be planted in a pot of soil and tended to as a houseplant. If your climate allows, you can plant this outdoors.

    I used to try growing avocado seeds the way your doing it until I talked to someone at a nursery who told me to plant the whole avocado pit in a pot with potting soil and keep putting warm water on it and it didn't take too long before it started to sprout.
