South Florida, on land. Coconut palms live in a fluid environmment. This tree does naturally (and spontaneuosly) grow in South Florida.


Coconut palms reproduce by producing coconuts and the seeds inside of the coconuts reproduce more palm trees. These trees provide man with food (coconuts), so it's useful. They have a perennial life cycle. This plant can live on a plain. Coconut palms can sometimes survive in a forest, but you are not likely to find them there. People use this plant for food and to make places have a beachy look/feel and to make everything look tropical.
