Right now, I have a whole garden of indoor plants in my living, ready for sharing at The Craft Revival, the semi-annual uber craft event coming Sunday, November 24, 2019 in Thunder Bay. I've made several dozen beautiful moss balls for sale like the ones pictures here.
Kokedama can be displayed individually or in a group; often several are hung together, creating a beautiful string garden.
A wide selection of plants can be used for kokedama. I prefer small tropical varieties such as pothos, ferns and marantha. These plants enjoy the water-holding quality of the clay soil mixture used and benefit from regular misting between waterings. In fact, a moss ball is a plant partnership between the central tropical and the moss which is also living. Misting helps to keep the moss fresh and green.
Preparing a supply of kokedama has been a labour of love, but with my garden laying its head down for winter, it has been a joy to source new plants for the indoors and create these living sculptures.
I hope you will look for KOKEDAMA by THERE BLOOMS A GARDEN at The Craft Revival next month.
