Avocado Tree, scientifically known as Persea americana, is a beautiful tropical plant native to south-central Mexico. Widely known for its buttery fruit, this tree is also appreciated for its lush, green canopy of leaves. Mature trees can reach heights of 40-80 feet outdoors. However, when grown indoors in pots, they usually maintain a much more manageable height.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

Avocado Trees can be quite sensitive to salt buildup in the soil, so be sure to flush the soil regularly or use rainwater for irrigation if possible. They also prefer slightly acidic soil, and regular feeding with a balanced fertilizer can help them thrive.

Care Guide

How to take care of Avocado Tree

They love as much sun as possible. The best spot for them is where they can see the sun during the majority of the day.

They will do their best and flower profusely in bright light. A nice bright place outside would be on a sunny balcony, deck, or backyard; inside your home, it would do best in a sunny window sill. Remember that plants will grow and flower based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to be relatively dry before the next watering. That usually takes about 2 weeks in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. droopy, floppy, or soft leaves). Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.
