I have a Persea americana 'Bacon' seed that I rooted in a cup of water. I see now that there is a single shoot coming up through the split on the seed. The stem is green and the tip is reddish in color with little wisps that look like they may grow into leaves. My questions are:
-- When do I plant the seed? Do I wait until the stem has grown taller?
-- How deep do I plant the seed? Just the roots? Or do I plant the whole seed up to the stem?
Any guidance and how-to information will be greatly appreciated!!!

Your Avocado looks awesome! I'd be planting it now and bury all but about a half inch of the seed at the top. Considering your zone, It will be wanting a nice south facing window unless you have a greenhouse. Use the water it's been in to water it once it's planted .. It will help reduce some of the stress of going terrestrial after aquatic by making the surround soil taste a bit like home. You'll want to keep the soil moist but more on the dry side than wet.
Please keep us updated on how it's faring.
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."
