    I know someone who's got an avocado plant. It's about a foot tall. Where do you live because you'd have to have a LOT of room to grow all those plants and trees (indoors or outdoors).

    I live In southern California, all of the above were/are outdoors plants. We even have orchids outdoors. Suffice as to say that our house is nestled into a little piece of botanical heavin.

    Oh add Guava to the list. Just sprouted and it is 6" tall already.


    I should probably catalog the whole thing.
    What did you feed it?

    I tried to cut a branch off a orange tree and make a cutting out of it so i stuck it in the ground and it has not grown for about 2 months already , is it that orange trees are no the type of plant that you can make cuttings of , do i have to wait longer .

    I have personally never tried to grow an orange form a cutting, I hear it can be done though, with rooting hormone. Also I have heard that it is easier to get them to root if you airlayer them.

    I would recomend doing a search ont he internet on airlayering technique and see if that works for you.

    I want to grow a mang plant. I love mangos! And maybe a kiwi too.
