@Sussanah it's another term for coconut husk. It's sold in compressed bricks at garden centers for pretty cheap.

I use it at the bottom of my pots to always have moisture in hot days.

I recently bought 2 bricks on sale. They are approx 30cm square by 7 cm. They expand anout 20 times mixed with water. I have such poor soil I plan on mixing this with my other amendments when I prepare my beds for planting. @wtwitchell6969 @Sussanah
