Coconut fibre, usually purchased in a compressed block. The compressed block is immeresed in water, whereapon it expands and can be used as a casing material.

It's sold as a reptile bedding material, checkout pet shops. It's sold under names such as "Eco Earth". It looks like a small brown brick. Alternatively, purchase from an online vendor such as Mycosupply: check out this link

You want the stuff on the left. The stuff on the right is fiber.

Looks like this when you buy it.

The hydro stuff is harder to find but then again it's 2.50 for a brick that is three times the size of the petstore ones. The other stuff in the post is 9.00 for 3 bricks and is on the shelf next to the bed a beast at petco.
