I wouldn't bake coco fiber. All I see is a coco fiber flash bang going off. Boil it in water if you want to treat it.

If you are baking it to dry it out, I would say about 200, and just keep an eye on it.

I think he wants to dry it for a background, am I right? I baked coco bedding before, thin layers in cookie sheets worked best for me. It dries pretty quick and I had the temp up pretty high.

I baked mine in large cookie trays at 350F for a hour or two. Every 30min you should mix it a bit as the top dries out but the bottom does not. The thinner the layer on the cookie trays, the faster it will dry, I wouldn't put more than 1" of coco at a time, it will take a long time to dry out.
