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 moss ball dew to keep the moss bale still moist. Kokedama is not recommended to be placed in direct sunlight.

The plant prefers a bright place, but it can also handle partial shade. In winter, when there is less light outside, we prefer to put the plant closer to the window. Without the sun, the plant dies.
Water in 1-2 weeks, it prefers wetter soil. However, let the upper part of the substrate dry out between waterings. Overwatering could cause rotting of the roots.
It is a tropical plant, so it requires dewing of the leaves.
Stem cuttings or top cuttings ideally in spring. Propagate 15 cm long top cuttings in water, transplant into soil after the roots appear.
Overwatering: Too much water can cause root rot, yellowing or leaf drop. Cool and damp habitat: Root rot and poor growth. Browning of the tips of the leaves: Little irrigation, too low air humidity, calcareous water. Brown spots on leaves: Burn of leaves from direct sunlight. Squirrels, woolly bugs - we deal with them with special sprays.
