In the realm of Japanese greenery, most people are familiar with Bonsai, but fewer so with Kokedama. Kokedama is essentially a hanging moss ball with a plant rooted in it. The roots conform to the sphere so you have a very neat looking plant suspended in air! Well, by string.

Here’s what you’ll need to follow along with this Lobotany infographic:

  • Moss
  • Bonsai soil or a clay and peat combo
  • A plant
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Spray bottle
  • Water

A bucket of water or sink of water
