Kokedama - Japanese Art of Growing Plants
Make and take home your kokedama, a living sculptural piece of art. Kokedama is a Japanese art of growing plants in a ball of soil covered by moss and wrapped by a string/thread. Kokedama is the practice of taking the plant’s root system and suspending it in a mud ball, which is then coated with soft moss, transforming it into sculptural art form.
