coco Peat is made from the husk of coconuts,use as hydroponic growing medium. u can get it frm any garden fertilizer shop, 40rs/ kg dried one in my place,
just place it as bottom layer thn other substrate layer ,generally people use it in thr diy substrate , degradation rate is vry slow, i used around 1 cm thick layer before using it soak in water just fr a minute it will expend thn place it.
