I can't give you a specific timeframe. Coconut palms are tolerant of waterlogged or flooded soil conditions for a few days. However, trees may decline and die when exposed to prolonged flooding or waterlogged soils. Their survival depends upon their overhealth prior to the flooding and the length of the time the soil remains saturated. I hope your trees survive!
