I'm growing avocado from a pit. I've always had only one sprout growing out of a pit but this one has 3 sprouts. I'm wondering if I can leave it as it is or have to thin it.
You can leave it the way it is. Most likely 2 of the shoots will die off as Avocados have strong apical dominance. If this doesnt happen, having multiple shoots won't hurt the tree. (Multiple shoots apparently also indicates is a very good plant)
