How to grow a coconut Tree

The ideal nut will have lots of water inside that will slosh around when you shake it.Make sure that the nut still in its husk.

Use a stone or weight to keep the coconut submerged. Leave the nut in the bucket for 3-4 days.

Place the nut in the bag and seal it. Store the bag in a warm, dark location for up to 3 months.

Once the nut has sprouted and started to grow roots, gently wrap a damp paper towel around the roots and place the seed back into the bag.

Use a mixture of half potting soil and half sand. Also add some fine gravel or vermiculite to help aerate the soil.

Place the nut into the soil with the pointed end down.[8] Make sure that 1/3 of the coconut sticks out of the soil.

Water the tree at least 2 times per week so the soil is moist but not too wet.

Coconut trees need a temperature of at least 72 °F (22 °C) but grow best at temperatures above 80 °F (27 °C).

After the first year, use a rotary spreader to apply fertilizer at a rate of 1 pound (0.45 kg) per 100 square feet (9.3 m2).
