A form of ancient Japanese bonsai, kokedamas (pronounced: ko kay da ma) are plants that are sculpted into hanging gardens by tightly entwining their roots in soil and moss and hand-shaping them into balls. Our artisans construct kokedamas using an assortment of succulents, including colorata and gouchii varieties, spider plants, and rabbit's foot fern depending on the set selected. A piece of twine is affixed to each plant, allowing you to hang these living conversation pieces in a window or other well lit area of your home. Purchase as Sets of 3, or build your set by adding individual Kokedamas to your cart!
Please note: There is a misprint in our Spring 2016 Catalog. To ensure you receive the correct assortment of Kokedama String Gardens please read the following -
|Dimensions||Approximately 3.5" diameter|
|Made in||United States|
|Product Care||Hang in a well lit area with bright, indirect sunlight, and for best results give kokedamas a few hours of direct sunlight every 2-3 days. To water, dip the ball with room temperature water for about 1 minute until you feel the ball is soaked through to the plants roots. Give it a light squeeze to ensure the water reaches the center of the ball and the roots of the plant. This should provide ample water for several weeks; we recommend watering every 2-3 weeks. If you feel the mossy exterior looks dry—remember that moss loves humidity—give it a light mist in between waterings.|
