Sprouting coconuts before falling. Almost impossible to fail growing Coconuts in South Florida. They thrive with our growing conditions.

@Moose Definitely the first time I've seen them sprout before they fall.  Thank you for sharing!

I didn't even notice the second one sprouting until I had to resize the picture.

Very interesting!

I got to confess that I had no idea about this topic until your explanation under your second post and then my eyes got wide...

Thank you for sharing!

best regards -

      Hi guys,

      I've just received my 3 sprouted coconuts in the mail. This will be my first time growing coconut and I am a bit excited and nervous at the same time as I've never done this before.

      I grew up in South East Asia and my late grandfather's house was surrounded with beautiful coconut trees. Now that I've moved to Melbourne Australia, I wanted a piece of tropical paradise with me to remind me of my childhood.

      Since it's currently winter now in Melbourne, the coconuts will be grown indoor. Once they get bigger... I will move them in the greenhouse. Hopefully with the right method and equipment, I would be able to grow them in the ground one day. I have about a dozen of banana trees growing in the backyard already and now I just need a few coconut trees to have my own tropical paradise.

      Do you guys have any advice for a newbie like me? Do's and don'ts? I have a heat mat, grow light and humidifier to help these babies grow. Should I leave the heat mat on all night? I put plastic over them to create a humid environment. Any fertilizer at all at this stage?

      Thanks guys and it's great to be a part of this community.

      Regards,
      Fi
