How to Make a Trendy Kokedama

Time: 10 minutes and 55 seconds | Season: All Year round

Step into the realm of living art with our Kokedama tutorial. This ancient Japanese technique, which translates to “moss ball”, is a form of garden art that’s both sustainable and stylish. Using an ivy plant, we’ll teach you how to encase the roots in moss and soil, creating a stunning natural piece that floats in the air, defying the traditional pot.

Top Tips:

  1. Keep your Kokedama moist, not drenched.
  2. Use a mix of peat soil and akadama for the best results.
  3. Select a shady spot for your ivy Kokedama to thrive.

If you would like to recreate the design, you will need the following:

Plant Materials
1 plant of choice
1 bag of compost
1 punnet of carpet moss
1 pair of gloves
1 roll of twine or thread
