Planting a coconut
My grandson found a small coconut on the ground near our home in Florida. It has already started to split on the top. I want to grow it for him if I can. We can hear the water inside the nut, which of course still has its green casing, although the top end has begun to turn brown. I have soaked the root end for a few days and am prepared to plant it in a pot according to your general instructions. Is it too late to sprout this in its present condition? Thank you.
If the coconut has already started to brown, there's a chance it's too late. But there's no reason not to try! The fact that the water's still inside is a very good sign. Just make sure to keep it nice and moist without letting it sit in water, and hope for the best!
