    Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime - probably more like a buck fifty -

    I bought a couple of coconuts and left one in a bag and kinda forgot about it for some weeks. Thought it too late to fool with and was going to throw it away, but decided to look and found this.

    Lucky man. I have always dreamed of growing a coconut palm, however I live in an area corrupted with nightmarish winters.

    Are you going to keep it and grow it out??

    That's pretty cool Paul. I've had them sprout in the husk but have never seen growth on just the "nut" before.

    Yes indeedy. I think I will try to grow it out, though I hear they don't like conditions other than tropical. Maybe it can get through the winter in the garage. Winters here are pretty mild, though we can occasionally dip below freezing. I read a story in Popular Science or Popular Mechanics where a gal in the 50's grew one from a seed and kept it for over thirty years. It's last home was a metal garbage can with holes punched though the bottom. She eventually gave it away when it got too large for her to care for.
