1. Carefully take out the avocado pit from the fruit, without damaging it.
  2. Wash off the remaining avocado on the pit and dry the pit. Make sure the pit is clean from the fruit.
  3. Take 3 toothpicks and gently insert them into the avocado pit so as to form a pyramid shape, where the top (pointy end) is inside the pyramid.
  4. Place the pyramid PEAK DOWN into the cup so that the TOP is facing up.
  5. Pour in water so that the entire bottom is submerged and the top is dry.
  6. Change water regularly when needed.
  7. When the seed splits, and the root grows to a more formidable size, transfer to soil.
