    i started two of them just over a year ago, both did great and i had no issues at all until i tried to cover it with soil. i did it by adding a little at the time over several weeks till the roots were covered and most of the pit (i'd read to leave the top exposed). it stopped growing and started withering and eventually died. the other one is still in my kitchen window and doing great, it's never had anything in the glass but cold tap water, crazy i know. i figure i'll just leave it as is till it outgrows the window then i'll burn that bridge when i get there.

    That's how mine started. Wilting lower leaves but addin new growth then died. I'm just gonna leave the other one in water till it's too big to deal with them might try repotting

    Just started scrolling through some of the gardening threads.
    Saw this one. I started 2 pits in water about a month ago. Hoping for small roots soon. I have read you need to cut the sprout once it gets so many inches tall.[​IMG]

    I started two pits, but forgot about keeping water in the bowl so I have to start all over. [​IMG]
