To make our Maranta Kokedama, we bind the roots of our these unique, patterned houseplants in bright green sphagnum moss. Maranta are often called Prayer Plants due to their unique habit of folding their leaves upwards at night. Not quite vining, these low spreading plants look stunning in kokedama.
Simply translated, kokedama means "moss ball," and these pieces are our take on the traditional Japanese bonsai practice of the same name. Sometimes called string gardens, each piece can sit in a shallow dish or hang with the attached fishing line loop, making them lovely additions to any window or tabletop.
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: When soil at base of plant feels barely moist, submerge entire moss ball in room temperature water until fully saturated
• Considerations: Prayer Plants love humidity. Mist your kokedama regularly.
