Coco coir, or coir, is a natural fibre extracted from the husk of coconut trees and represents 35% of the seed. During decades, it became a major concern in countries like India or Sri Lanka, where the husk of the seeds was piled up creating a perfect environment for the reproduction of insects and rodents. Today, this residue is washed, dehydrated and pressed into bricks, thus getting a cheap, light and efficient growing media.
