I have harvested some carrots which were growing in cocopeat. How to reuse this cocopeat? Is adding some vermicompost/manure bring back the lost nutrients for the new plants?

Sri, cocopeat itself doesn't have nutrients; it is just a medium to aerate the soil. As far as I know, it should be fine to add  more nutrients and reuse the cocopeat. That's what I do.

Cocopeat is very useful for soil, as it increases soil fertility and it has water absorbing capacity.

It is natural and does not have any side effect.
