"What is a Kokedama?"
The art of Kokedama literally translates from “koke” meaning moss and “dama” meaning ball.
It is a form of Japanese garden art tied to bonsai and is the practice of taking the root ball of a plant and suspending it in a mud ball, which is then coated with moss. The moss ball can be fixed to a driftwood or a burl, placed on a tray or saucer, added to an apothecary jar or suspended from a string.
Join Lana of The Fine Gardener as she guides you through creating your own Kokedama balls. She'll help you choose the right plants for the best l results for your living sculpture. They make for a perfect moss ball terrarium in an apothecary jar. Bring along your own glass and she will help you choose the right plant for a custom fit!
