Big apologies to all! Feeling very embarrassed, turned out it was a stray leaf from something else that had blown in and lodged in the coconut husk :blushing:

And at the risk of sounding kinda shady, not disappointing for me. I'm feeling kinda on-track again. Is that wrong? :rofl:

Not at all. I was just commiserating about thinking you had a sprout and then finding out ya donít.

I truthfully have no idea what you all are expecting bc Iíve never done it that way. Iím as excited as yíall

{{SmackMyHead}} What are we expecting?!? A tree, of course! That's why you keep tormenting with pictures of coconut trees sprouting, and ES encouraging us to soak coconuts! This isn't a trick, is it? :shock:

Hahaha I meant sprouting the brown, husked nut

My experience is all in the complete ones

I wrote to soak them for a few days, then put them into a container where they would remain damp but not in water.

WaterWitchin 02-08-2021 09:25 AM

DirtyC... It's supposed to work. ES said so. And ES, I did soak for about five days. And it's been in a closed container with a bit of moist sphag since.

I think it's time to get the seedling mat out!

Fuerte Rav 02-08-2021 05:36 PM

and I obviously didn't pay proper attention to the instructions from ES as mine has been in water all along!

I'm gonna leave it there now and hope it does as per DC's report of one growing in a floating pallet!

🤞

Anyone got a pet 'southern pig-tailed macaque'? :biggrin:
