To make our Philodendron Kokedama, we bind the roots of these vining, easy to care for houseplants in bright green sphagnum moss. Philodendron is a large genus of aroid plants highly prized for their foliage, which varies dramatically in color, size and shape.
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: Tolerates low light, but thrives in 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: Clip back long vines to promote a bushier growth habit. Cuttings can be easily propagated!

I have been looking at Pistils website at the Kokedamas for months and wondering how they looked up close and personal. I finally bought two; a philodendron and a hoya. All I can say is-I am in love with them! So amazing and cool! Hanging in my windows...see for yourself and look at my pictures. I already ordered two more. You will love them too.
I just bought three plants from pistils.... this kokadema, a Calathea white fusion, and prayer plant. All three are beautiful!! They look a little stressed after having been in a box for more than a week, but I think they will bounce back. Can’t wait for this kokadema to grow and trail.
