Very cool. I might try that.
It looks like you planted Pork & Beans, I love the red and green on those plants. I've had a lot of luck growing those.
Trailing succulents like Donkey Tail and String of Pearls would look cool too in a hanging coconut.

Great little hanging pot! How did you get all the coconut meat out so nicely? I have never been able to do that so cleanly.

@ dale after I cut the top off I baked it in the oven for 2-3 hrs at 150 degrees makes the meat easier to get out.
