Kokedama is a plant grown in a ball of soil that is covered with moss. The idea originates from Japan where Kokedama is very popular. The word Kokedama is Japanese and in English translates to "moss ball".
The traditional method of creating a Kokedama is to use a mixture of peat soil or Keto and Akadama, covered by sphagnum moss before holding it all together with nylon string.
How to make your Kokedama.
• Mix together the soil ingredients, 75% peat soil or Keto and 25% Akadama. Add water if needed to get a consistency that holds together as a ball.
Kokedama can be displayed in many ways. These include;

How to take care of your Kokedama.
• Water regularly. Place the moss ball in a bucket of water for a few minutes. Allow the excess water to run away before replacing back to it's original position.
