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!

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
