Okay, now we have cleaned up the coconut meat and we are left with this bulky material. And here we have the fibrous part of the coconut. These fibers are really good in the compost pile. Once they break down, they hold, retain tremendous amount of water. So it helps in your soil so that your plants are always nice and roots around your plants are nice and moist. And so this, what we call the coconut core, is actually used in the green house industry as a product to mix with their soils to enhance their soils. So, you would want to incorporate this product right here into a gardening project where you would compost it down and add it to your soil. Which would create a much healthier and more viable garden. And this core here is hard to break down so when you take it to the compost pile, you would probably want to chop it up a little bit so that it would break down faster. So that's the story of what to do with all these coconut cores.
