I the summer I could get a bunch of discarded coconuts husk after people had drank the water in it.
if you want to drink the water a small coconut is $2 up to 3 or 4 bucks for the larger ones.

I noticed some are yellow and some are green. what is the difference?

Anyway coconut is the best media for me by far. It can dry fast.
Simply different variety. We in Trinidad refer to the yellow nuts as Chinese Coconuts, and some prefer these to the green especially as a young water nut (no jelly) and there are others with varying shades of green. The yellow grow on dwarf trees while the green on tall. As to other differences, say in fiber and nutrient content I cannot say at this time.
