This is the moment a woman returned home to find that her avocado seed had grown - a staggering amount:
Sharing her revelation to her TikTok account (@___chels___) the woman, called Chelsea, looked absolutely gobsmacked to find that the green fruit had wrestled its way out of the top of a plastic bottle and extended to the ceiling.
Captioning the post on the video-sharing platform, Chelsea wrote: "I wasn't at my apartment for 4 months to check up on my propagated avocado seed and i came back to THIS."
She also wrote on the video itself: "When you let your avocado seed grow in your apartment for four months with no sun."
Pretty good going, all being considered.
No sunlight and no attention for four whole months must be beneficial for seemingly low-maintenance avocado plants. Who knew?
The clip tickled TikTok users with many giving the plant a voice of it's own, imagining it to say things like 'fine, I'll find the sun myself,' and 'ayo where the sun at?'
One person was more concerned with it's colour, asking why it's pink with another quickly explaining: "No sun, no green from chlorophyll."
Someone else backed up the theory, adding: "It's using its energy to grow rapidly to find sunlight instead of growing leaves. No sun = no leaves = no chlorophyll to get its green colour."
Others were quick to share their own experiences, with one TikTok user explaining: "My roommate did this with green onions and it almost took over the kitchen."
Someone seemed pretty defeated, admitting: "4 months?? Mine has been growing for a year and it's not that tall. But it has some big leaves lol."
Swings and roundabouts, right?
Bizarrely, one person said that she was frightened... yes. She wrote: "Ok but why does it scare me knowing it's searching for sunlight... plants [are] gonna take over."
Taking a more appreciative stance, another commented: "This is a testament to the perseverance of plants. What a determined stick."
According to reports, the original poster shared an update with people who were obviously concerned with the avo. She wrote: "Update: there's a little green stem at the top, I'm probably gonna cut it."
