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.
About the plant:
Marantha or im aranta comes from the tropical regions of South and Central America and belongs to slow-growing, low, bushy plants with thin stems and relatively wide and large leaves. In the rainforest, it forms a dense undergrowth, most often in the shade of tall trees. Marantha together with the genera Calathea, Ctenanthe and Stromanthe form a very similar group of so-called praying mantises plants ( prayer plants in English ). They are called so because they always begin to straighten their leaves towards evening, which can resemble hands folded in prayer. In the morning, they delight and open their leaves again. Maranta Lemon lime is a rarer variety that is characterized by oval leaves with distinct neon green veins and light spots. In summer, white-purple flowers may appear on the stems.
