Nada. Just sitting there. Since middle of November. {{sigh}} Saw a tiny bit of white mold. Gonna wash it off a bit, rotate it a little. Leaving the cover off for a bit. But I do think maybe I have a bit of sphagnum that's beginning to grow.

This is patience at a whole new level.

Update to April 2021. I'd take a new picture of The Coconut Project, but the only thing happening is greener sphag. Grandson keeps pointing it out to the parents when they visit "Look, Abuela and I are growing a coconut tree." Parents "Oh, that's exciting!" {{parents look at each other and roll eyes}}.

Patience at a whole new level indeed. If we don't get anywhere soon, Imma go buy a very small coconut tree, crack this sucker open, and plant the tree in it. Voila! I'll show those skeptical parents a thing or two! :rofl:

It’s a totally unfair thing too as you are going from a husked fruit and I am choosing the nicest from pile on the curb lol

the bucket in the background is a 8.5 gallon chlorine tablet bucket, maybe 2.5' tall.

the sprout is maybe 3.5' these are the immature sprout leave (probably have a real name) and the first leaves that will spread and palm out like the mature ones just emerging

Do it!!
They are such good trees and you can use them for many many orchid purposes.

Shells for hanging baskets
Weave the leaves into shade mat
