How do you sprout a plum seed that you got from a plum at grocery store?

There are many ways to grow your own plum tree from a seed. The best idea would be to start it off in a small pot though. That way it doesn't have to fight the elements. Plant the seed about 1-2 inches in the pot with fresh and moist dirt. Water it every 3-4 days unless you notice that the soil is getting hard and crumbly. Remember that trees are slow growing and won't sprout up over night. Also make sure once it does sprout to give it sun so it can photosynthesize.
