Water when the kokedama is dry, and feels light to hold.
Pileas are a plant that do not like soggy roots, so be careful not to over water. A good indicator when it is time to water is when the leaves slightly wilt. They will bounce back up when they have been given a drink, but this will help guide you so to not over water.
Be sure to follow the guide provided regarding how to water, and ensure they are gently squeezed out to remove excess liquid to prevent over watering.
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.
