Planting and care

After the coconut has soaked, place it in a container filled with well-draining potting soil. It is best to mix in a little sand or vermiculite to make sure the soil you will be growing coconut trees in drains well.
The container needs to be around 12 inches deep to allow for the roots to grow properly. Plant the coconut point side down and leave one-third of the coconut above the soil.

  • If you decide to repot your coconut tree, remember to add sand or vermiculite to the new soil to keep the water draining well.
