Kokedama is roughly the size of a rockmelon.
Comes complete with a coaster, full care instructions and a gift box.
Loves medium and bright filtered light positions, away from direct sun. The brighter the better.
Can tolerate lower light, but will be slower growing and will not flower.
Water when the soil just starts to feel dry, typically weekly through the warmer months, but then cut back to every 2-3 weeks during the cooler months.
Does not like to be left dry for long periods, and also does not like soggy feet so do not over water.

HOW TO WATER
Fully submerge your kokedama in a bowl, sink or bucket. You may need to hold it under for a moment! Allow to soak for 10-15 minutes until kokedama feels heavy and full.
It is important to gently squeeze out excess water from the kokedama by pressing between two hands, on the sides towards the base. This will ensure your kokedama does not stay waterlogged which will prevent conditions such as root rot, fungus gnats and mould. As the moss and twine are natural products they are biodegradable and as such, squeezing out the excess water will prevent deterioration, prolonging the life of your kokedama.
