They fall from the palm and roll, and as they float they are also dispersed by the sea or ocean.

coconuts have a very hectic and lenghty process of germination. their seeds are dispersed when a coconut falls on the ground. it is then carried away by the water for dipersal to other areas. a coconut seed can remain in hibernation for many years and even after a very long time if it finds the right place and conditions it can undergo germination to form a new coconut tree
