I have a 4-year-old coconut palm in a pot in my house, maybe 15 inches wide, 18 deep. The top half of the nut is still exposed at the top of the soil, and I am starting to see some roots at the base of the trunk where it meets the nut. Is there a point in time where I should completely cover the nut with soil? Or try to remove it or add more soil around the roots I see? Or what is the next step in giving it the healthiest possible indoor life? It’s about 3 feet tall. Should I repot it? Thanks!

You don't need to do anything with the nut. It can stay as it is. Beyond this, just make sure that you water regularly, that it is in the correct type of soil and is getting plenty of light. You can repot when it becomes rootbound.
