Kokedama

Japanese Hanging Moss Balls

Kokedama is a form of Japanese garden art that is centuries old and tied into the practice of bonsai. It is an accent to that mode of plant display where a moss ball is the focal and supporting point for a sculpted tree or plant. The moss ball is fixed to a platform or suspended from string with the plant growing out from the sphere. It is a living planter as well as a distinctive display piece.

The art of Kokedama literally translates from “koke” meaning moss and “dama” meaning ball. Kokedama has experienced a resurgence as a modern art form useful for uniquely presented plants and flowers.
