Kokedama is a Japanese growing technique used to create living moss-covered soil balls with plants growing in them! Presented by my friends at EcoScraps!
These kokedama ornaments will look wonderful on your tree. I love to use them on a large bottle brush tree in my office. After the holiday season I'm going to transplant the plants into pots using Ecoscraps® Potting Mix!
You will need:
small green plants
- Remove plants from their containers, retaining the soil.
- Wet the moss a little, its easier to work with that way.
- Mold the soil around the roots into a small ball. Wrap the ball in moss and secure it with floral wire so it retains a round shape.
- Decorate with mushrooms and add a string to so it will hang from your tree. Make sure it hangs in the direction you want it to when you're adding your string.
- When the plants needs water simply put the whole moss ball into water and let it soak up.
- When the holidays are done, unwrap the soil ball and transplant the plant into pots!
