aka "String gardens"
Kokedama, which originates in Japan, literally means "moss ball" in English. A bare-root plant is placed in a ball of soil, covered with moss, in which a plant grows. Kokedama is also refered to 'poor man's bonsai'. It's made of wet Akadama (soil) and Keto (peat) formed into a ball. The roots are packed into the ball and moss is placed around it. Twine or wire is wrapped around the whole bundle to secure it. Kokedama can be hung in the air or displayed atop a decorative dish.
With a variety of color options and style possibilities, sky is the limit!
Moss must be spritzed with water very regularly to stay green. It is normal for the moss to turn brown or go dormant if kokedama is placed in sunny location.
Depending on the needs of the individual plant - when the ball feels light, the root-ball should be submerged in water until all air-bubbles disappear. Squeeze out the excess water.
