I finally picked up a coconut at a grocery store earlier today. I am wanting to try and grow it, but I have no idea where to start. Tomorrow I will be getting it a pot and some soil, but which kind of soil works best? I was thinking of trying sand. The coconut does not look fully mature yet, as it is light brown with those three spots starting to become visible. It is round at the bottom, and it goes up into a rounder pyramid near the top. How do I position the coconut in it's pot? EDIT: I found a site with pretty much all of the info I need, so I guess I will post some piccies if the palm ever sprouts.
