Growing Coconuts from seeds

Q: Good afternoon Anna, hope all is well. I have a question regarding Coconut growth. When I planted my coconuts seeds I notice they had water in it, after checking 6 months later I took one out from the pot and shock to see if still had water but notice no water shaken inside, still, no plant growing on all 6 seeds but no water noise inside of them. Can you indicate if I should discard them or are they still have a chance they will germinate?

A: Coconut seeds normally germinate within a month from planting. If there is no growth within 6 month, chances are the seed was not ripe enough, or didn't have proper conditions for germination.
To grow a coconut palm from seed, place the nut on top of the soil (if in a pot, must be at least 3 gal pot) on its side, and bury it in soil half-way. Keep it warm (75F or higher, the warmer the better), in full sun, and soil must stay moist. Start fertilizing when the seed sprouts.
