Kokedama is roughly the size of a coconut.
Comes complete with a coaster, full care instructions and a gift box.
Ideally suited to bright filtered light, out of direct sun, but can also do well in lower light positions.
Through the warmer months, keep plant evenly moist - watering typically weekly.
Through the winter months, reduce watering to roughly monthly, but do not completely suspend watering.
Be mindful to not allow water to collect and settle around the foliage. Be careful not to 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.
Alternatively, you can gently water from the top as you would a normal pot plant. Simply part any lower foliage to expose some soil and gently water. This method will also ensure the moss and twine wrap is prolonged.
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.
