Dear All,

Recently a coconut which was humbly given by Guruji after Pooja has sprouted out, We live in an apartment and would like to grow the same in our balcony.

We have totally zero knowledge about Gardening, but with some help we have planted the same in a pot (it is about six weeks now)

Please guide on the following:
(1) Soil to be used
(2) Frequency of watering (Chennai's climate)
(3) When the same can be placed on the ground ( meaning how long can it be allowed to grow in the pot)
(4) Any additional info which has not come to my mind

Thanks in advance, SAIRAM

Well, We have sprouting coconuts quite a few times. But growing a coconut tree in a balcony is unthinkable proposition. The tree grows quite big to my knowledge. Never seen one grown in a container.

Hi Sairam,
Growing a coconut tree in a big beautiful pot can add tremendously to your decor. But they're huge, so, do you live at ground level? Or do you live on a higher floor? It will only work if you have an opening to wheel it around without overhead obstacles. I use a large potted plant hand truck, and it's allowed me to easily do the work of a team of men without damaging my fruit trees or my expensive pots. I have the bigger hand truck at the bottom. They sell them at If you don't have overhead space or a way to wheel it out, then all I can say is that you might be creating disappointment for yourself if you proceed.
