Step 1: Cut the Coconut
The first thing you should do is cut a hole in the top of the young coconut
Then you make the hole bigger so you can enter the plant within
Step 2: Make Another Hole in the Bottom
Now you have to make a hole in the bottom with the screw driver (you can make more than one hole). It should measure a little over 1cm2.
this will help the water to drain and not rot the root of the plant
Step 3: Choose a Base Suport
you can use a dish or a plant pot base... It only helps the water doesn't leak
Step 4: Placing the Soil
chose the best soil and place it in the coconut
Step 5: Plant Whatever You Want
Now you can plant a seed (It need time and care) or you can buy a plant and place it in the young coconut
Step 6: Finished
This is the final result (I've plant a seed, and two weeks later.. surprise!)
