    Default Growing Lychees from seed

    I saved a couple of lychee seeds from some fresh fruit, and have potted them up. One has now sprouted up out of the soil.. so it looks like I may have my very own lychee tree in a few months.

    Has anyone else grown them? (No, I'm not growing it for the fruit.. just looking for an interesting -and free- house plant). I've done a bit of googling, and aside from finding out about growing grafted or purchased trees.. there doesn't seem to be much about caring for your own sown. I've done avocados, dates, and citrus,.. the citrus and dates are current about two years old, but the avocados always die after they reach about a foot high (whether they spend a summer outdoors or not).

    Any suggestions for growing lychees?

    We've just had some lychees for dessert and my 11-year-old daughter wondered if we could grow some lychees from seed. I said I would try to find out. A Google search led me to your post from about 10 years ago. I just wanted to ask how the lychee that sprouted is doing now, and have you tried again and had more success? I have an 18 month old Avacado plant on my kitchen windowsill, which was from the only stone out of about 20 that sprouted - I had done something similar in the 70s.

    KInd regards
