small plants (tropicals, succulents or herbs)
Wet (do not soak) sheet moss and set aside.
Put potting soil in a bucket and add water until the mixture is very wet and you can form a ball without it breaking apart.
This photo shows a ball formed from three mini plants: Mother of Thyme, Peperomia and Pilea.
Completed ball with two trailing plants: Variegated Ivy and Wire Vine.
Now begin wrapping the ball with sheet moss gathering it around the plant stem.The plant ball should be completely enveloped in sheet moss.
Finally, wrap the moss ball with string until it is secure and then tie in the string end. Tie in an additional length of string for hanging.
That's it! How fun was this! Your kokedama is ready for hanging!
Tips and Care: Tropical plants are the most successful. Choose plants that require indirect or low light and follow plant care instructions. Kokedama are usually hung inside, but some may be able to spend the summer outdoors. Water by immersing the moss ball in a sink of water for 10 minutes and allow to drip dry before hanging again. Enjoy!
