Viet and Koichi love growing vegetables in their office.
Could you raise this puppy instead? I would love to do it, but I need to relocate to Neptune next month.
What did you raise as a class when you were in elementary school? Our class was raising tadpoles, hamsters, and eggplants, but all of the hamsters ran away and got eaten by cats.
This is similar to 育つ, except now you're doing the raising of someone. This word means to bring up or to raise. You can remember this because of the てる. Your version of bringing a child up involves tearing (てる) all their clothes to make them look poor so they can get the cheaper lunch at school. You're rich because of all the tax breaks you get from all the children you're raising, but you could always use more money to fuel your StarCraft addiction (we've all been there).
The reading comes from 育つ. So long as you know that one, you know how to read this one as well.
