THE ART OF KOKEDAMA
Kokedama is a Japanese word that means ‘moss ball.’ The planting practice has its origins in Japan and is a combination of nearai (meaning ‘no pot’) bonsai and kusamono (‘grass thing’ or when a planting is displayed as the center of attention) planting styles. The result is modern minimalism at its best: a moss-covered root ball that is held tight with twine (there’s no pot! the moss in and around the soil holds in moisture).
We plant ours up using a variety of miniature/small plants that thrive in moist Kokedama soil. And we like to display ours on a rustic wood trivet, nestled in a clear container or hanging. Ask us for pointers on care (it’s easy!) and how to display.
