I’m wanting to try and germinate a coconut. The grocery stores up here only have the small husked coconuts. Would anyone be able to ship a fresh one off a tree? Thanks!
Home Depot was having a sale on 3gal c. Nucifera so I bought one. I plan on keeping it in a large planter through this winter until I plant it out in the spring.
any advice on soil type for the planter?
originally I potted it in about 50/50 native soil (central florida sand) and top soil. But it seems to hold moisture more than ideal.
perhaps mix in some play sand? Or miracle grow tropical soil mix?
thanks in advance
Hello to everyone on Palm talk, I just got approved today and I am excited to be part of this community.
I have a few questions about my small coconut that I found at a local nursery. First, is it possible for anyone to id it at the size that it is? I think that it is a green dwarf variety because it was grown in a nursery in Miami, but I'm not sure. Second, how big should the pot be as it gets larger, and how often should I repot it? Lastly, are the brown tips and spots in the photos normal or is it caused by something? The reason I have so many questions is because I heard that coconuts are hard to grow indoors during the winter and I want mine to be as healthy as possible so that it has a higher chance of surviving. Any other advice will be greatly appreciated.

Today I went to Floribunda Palms to pick up my order. A little sad that Jeff was sick so no palm tour from him he did drag himself out of bed and show up as I was loading my new palms in the truck. I did get a quick walk-through with one of his workers to see the garden. It’s been along time since I’ve been there never enough time on my vacations to do anything. Well I took a few photos that I can share.
