Kokedama is a Japanese planting style which means moss ball. The process involves making a soil mixture and rolling it into a ball. Next, I encase the roots of the plant in the ball.  Then, I wrap the mud ball with moss, carefully covering the entire ball with it. Fishing line is then wrapped around the moss to secure it to the mud ball.  Finally, I wrap twine around the moss ball. Kokedamas make the perfect hanging garden.

Kokedamas require minimum maintenance. Once a week, the kokedama needs to be submerged in water for 10-15 minutes. After its bath, you can dry it off with a towel and then return to its home.  

The kokedama may mold a bit depending on where it is kept and the type of twine used to wrap it. If you see any signs of mold or fungus, simply wipe it off with a towel.

Kokedamas can be kept inside or outside. When outside, make sure to hang your kokedama in a shady area to protect it from too much rain and sun. When inside, make sure you hang your kokedama in an area that receives plenty of indirect sunlight or artificial light. 

Kokedamas provide an artistic way to bring nature to your home. Hanging gardens create living art sculptures that will surely bring a touch of harmony to your home.
