We planted the above coconut seed about a month ago and a root nub appeared after a few weeks. The nub hasn't grown much since that time but time will tell if its alive or not. From what I've read coconuts grow well in hot humid environments that have no freezing temperatures ever, such as the tropics. Unfortunately for us in Phoenix we get frosts about every three years, so our tree will have to remain in the greenhouse. But at this point we don't even know if we can get the seed to sprout into a tree. We'll report back if and when it actually works.
