We have coconut tree in our bunglow. Every year it bears fruits in large qty. These fruits grow up to two inches only and then dry up. Can you please suggest remedy?

This sounds like an issue with pollination. Where is this tree grown - indoors or outside? If inside, you should move it outdoors to make the tree more accessible to pollinating insects and wind, which is its normal means of pollination, or you could try to mimic the wind by placing a small fan nearby (on low setting) to move pollen within the tree. If the tree is grown outdoors, you may need to try hand pollinating. Just use a small paint brush and swirl it around the inside of the flower and repeat on all the flowers on the plant.
