Coconut palm tree seeds/coconuts

In which direction do I plant a coconut palm seed/coconut? Do I place it pointed side down or plant the side up that was attached to the whole bunch of coconuts before they fell to the ground??

If you observe sprouting coconuts in nature you'll see that they normally sprout on their side. That is, don't put the pointed end up or down, but rather pointing outward or lateral to the ground.
