This majestic tree is one of the most useful trees in the world, and is often referred to as the "tree of life". It provides food, fuel, cosmetics, folk medicine and building materials, among many other uses.
Coconuts require direct sin to grow properly. Give it as much sun as possible.
Keep the soil continuously moist with warm water, but do not soak the plant. In winter, mist it frequently or provide high levels of ambient humidity with a humidifier.
Feed year-round with a weak liquid fertilizer or palm fertilizer, and increase feeding during the summer months when it's actively growing.
Coconut tree is non-poisonous to humans and pets.
