Production of kokedam takes 5-7 days, please expect a slight delay in your order.
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 use a moss ball dew to keep the moss bale still moist. Kokedama is not recommended to be placed in direct sunlight.

The plant needs enough diffused light for healthy growth. Avoid direct sunlight, which could burn the leaves. The ideal site is the north and east side near the windows or the west side with fading weak sunlight.
Do not let the substrate dry completely. The substrate must always be moist. The ideal dressing is to put it in a saucer and let it absorb. Water with settled water at room temperature.
The plant can tolerate a drier environment, but they can catch the leaves. The plant prefers greater airiness, moisture and regular dewing.
The plant is well propagated by cuttings from twigs that take root in water. We recommend pruning in the spring.
The plant does not like drafts and changing habitats. Then you will be rewarded with falling and yellowing of the leaves.
