  • Can avocados grow inside?

    Created by avocado.sandwich on

    Hello, Im a 12 year old (almost) gardener trying to grow an avocado tree indoors. Everything looks how it should look like, but I have this bad feeling about something going wrong. I don’t know what but I just need some tips and should I buy a grow light? Every answer helps. Thanks in advance.

    Avocado trees can be easy to grow if you have it in the right conditions so, I wouldn’t worry too much about your tree if you don’t see any bad signs. I’ve got a couple simple pointers to offer you that will help prevent problems in the first place.

    They need a lot of sunlight so, if you have a window that faces South that you can put it in, that would be best! If that’s not an option, you may need to look in to getting a grow light to make your tree happy and healthy.

    Be sure it is in a pot that is twice the length of the roots so it can spread easily with well draining, lightly sandy soil.

    ​Fertilizing with a good fish emulsion fertilizer while it’s young will help it grow strong and make it easier for the plant to grow later on as it ages​​.

    Other than that, you can always contact us if you see any yellowing/brown leaves, pests, or diseases on it and we’d be happy to help!

    ​Here are a couple websites you can check out with some basic care for avocado trees.


    Happy gardening!​


    Hello young gardener 🙂 Nice to hear that you are trying out with this Avocado tree. As E. Vinje is saying, I wouldn’t worry so much neither. My sister has experimented with Avocado trees before, and she got her inspiration from this step by step guide.


    God luck 🙂
