in what do i plant my cocos?



Hi Jofus and welcome to GoY. Sorry do you have another name for your plant/shrub/bulb I've never heard of cocos

I think Jofus means Cocos nucifera, the coconut palm - I'd use John Innes No. 2 or 3.

Grow in john innes number 2 with added sharp sand, and fibrous garden compost, about a 2 1 1 mix, be prepared to have to get rid of it in a few years time as they grow to between 70 and 100 feet eventually, unless you have an extremely large conservatory type greenhouse, good luck !, Derek.
