Kokedama is a special way of growing plants, literally translated "moss ball", originating from Japan. Kokedama consists of a plant, a special substrate ( black clay ketotsuchi ), other components ( Akadama, zeolite, pumice, sand and peat ) are additionally mixed into the clay. From these materials, a suitable plant is perfectly wrapped in a "ball" and the whole is covered with moss. Traditionally, kokedams are hung on string, macrame or placed on wet pebbles or other material.
Caring for a kokedama
We take care of each kokedama according to the type of plant we have in it. Kokedamu water with boiled/boiled water approximately once a week. Kokedama is bothered by chlorine, we do not recommend water directly from the tap. Just place the kokedama in water for a few minutes, let it drain and hang it up again. You can tell if it needs to be watered by the weight of the kokedama and also by how dry your moss ball is. You can moss ball dew to keep the moss bale still moist. Kokedama is not recommended to be placed in direct sunlight.
Areca lutescens "dypsis lutescens" from the areca family, ( Czech areca palm or areca palm) is a plant native to Madagascar. It belongs to the heat-loving species and can grow to around 1.5 m in our conditions. A small plant usually has two leaves, over time the branches branch slightly into more leaves. Unlike other palm trees, the soft, deep green leaves do not sting, so they are safer. Due to the appearance of its leaves, it is also called the butterfly palm. The undemanding palm tree is suitable for almost any environment and beautifully fills an empty space both at home and in the office or in corridors.
