Kokedama is a ball of soil, covered with moss, on which an ornamental plant grows. The idea has its origins in Japan, where it is a combination of the bonsai and kusamono planting styles. (Credit WIKIPEDIA)
KOKEDAMA BY UPAJ
Today, Kokedama is very popular in Japanese gardens and the beauty has spread much beyond it’s borders. At Upaj, Vadodara, we have redesigned the traditional Kokedama to suit Indian context and climate. We use rich potting soil mix to cover the root ball, which we wrap in a jute cloth and tie meticulously with thread. The threads are tied to form intricate patterns on the ball enhancing the subtle beauty of the plant itself.
HOW TO CARE FOR KOKEDAMA INDOORS
A Kokedama can be hung or placed on a table. To water simply place a bowl or shallow dish under the ball and fill with water. Let the plant absorb water for a few hours. Once saturated, remove from water. It is important to let the ball dry out in between watering periods to maintain healthy roots.
