g'day mark,

don't think store bought ones will grow, or at least i've never heard of them
growing.

i got a fresh very ripe coconut sat it in a shady damp spot of my
sub-tropical garden lay some compost around the nut to about 1/3 the nut
covered, and before i knew it it had sprouted and is now growing happily in
my garden, this nut was not green but it was ripe with all the husk in tact.

the one i got is referred to as a golden coconut palm they fruit when the
fruit can still be easily reached from the ground.

happy gardening
