Coco brick Biococco


Terrarium substrates, derived from the outer shell of the coconut.

Pressed coconut fiber Biococco - 5kg brick

  • Not dangerous if ingested in small quantities
  • Immersed in 20 liters of water, up to 60 liters of coconut fiber are obtained

Coconut peat Biococco - brick of 650gr

  • Humidity below 20%;
  • To be rehydrated before use with a final yield of about 8 litres;
  • Absorbs bad smells.

The difference between fiber and coco peat lies in the raw material of the nut shell, water absorption, nutritional value, color and pH level. Read below if you need more information!

Coconut fiber is one of the favorite substrates in the field of exotic animals and beyond.

Its absorbency and the ability to raise the humidity rate inside your terrariums/paludariums combined with complete digestibility in case of accidental ingestion, make it a safe, simple and economical substrate, also pleasing to the eye as it has a completely natural appearance .

Coconut fiber is also one of the most practical and efficient substrates on which to grow: it is light, well aerated and oxygenated, has excellent drainage, a stable pH, retains humidity, is ecological and recyclable.

Coco peat also comes from the outer shell of the coconut, and is suitable for reptiles and amphibians that live in humid habitats, typical of tropical forests.

  • It is made from 100% cocopeat from which most of the fiber is removed;
  • It has a high absorbent power and an excellent ability to retain moisture;
  • Before drying, it undergoes a process of sterilization from seeds, mushrooms, insect eggs.

Preparing them is very simple, just place the blocks in a bucket and add water, let them expand for 30 minutes, squeeze them with your hands to reach the desired humidity and then distribute them in the terrarium, container or fauna box according to your needs. Over the days they will begin to dry but it will be enough to nebulize them with a spray bottle to return to the desired initial humidity level. Both fiber and coco peat can be used not only for your terrariums but also as soil for plants and flowers, but also as a base for all horticultural plant seedlings, when you need to change them in the terrarium you can use them as compost or simply dispose of them as organic waste.

Differences between coconut fiber and coconut peat

Referring to the last picture, coir is made by defibrating mesocarp, coir peat by pulverizing from endocarp and exocarp. Peat holds more moisture and makes the soil more compact, coir makes the soil porous and allows plant roots to breathe. It also aids in drainage, so it's perfect for plants that need less water in their soil. Coconut fiber does not retain the same amount of water, making it less susceptible to mould. It also has better nutritional value than coconut peat. Scientifically speaking, these two differ in cation exchange capacity (CEC); coconut fiber absorbs more nutrients, such as potassium, magnesium and calcium. When you put coir and coco peat next to each other, you will notice that the coir is lighter than the peat resulting in a dark brown almost black color. When you touch coco peat, you will notice that it is soft, while coir is more stringy. They also differ in acidity. Peat is neutral, coir is considered acidic.
