Houseplant Kokedama

Kokedama is the Japanese art of growing plants in a ball of soil, covered in moss. Great for all kinds of indoor or shade-loving plants from ferns to succulents and more. Beautiful when grouped and displayed hanging in a window, or as an accent on a table.

Water by soaking the ball in water for an hour or two, then let drip dry in a sink or other durable worksurface. Take note of the weight of the ball after you water; when it begins to feel "light" again, it's time to water.
