Coco Peat is a natural fibre made out of coconut husks.

The extraction of the coconut fibre from husks gives the by-product called Coco Peat and it is a 100% natural growing medium. Coir waste is washed, heat-treated, screened and graded before being processed into Coco Peat products of various granularity and denseness, which are then used for horticultural and agricultural applications and as industrial absorbent. Coco Peat is usually shipped in the form of compressed bales, briquettes, slabs or discs. A single kilogram of Coco Peat will expand to 15 litres of moist coco peat. Trichoderma is a naturally occurring fungus in Coco Peat; it works in symbiosis with plant roots to protect them from pathogenic fungi such as pythium. It is not present in sterilized Coco Peat. Trichoderma is also destroyed by hydrogen peroxide.
