Basic Kokedama Kit


A kit with all the basics to get you making your own moss balls in no time! The kokedama, or moss ball, is a botanical art form that originated in Japan as an alternative form of bonsai. Plant roots are encased in moss, a special soil mix and covered again in moss, the moss ball providing all they need to thrive. They moss ball is usually then hung or placed in a dish for display. Sometimes known as string gardens, kokedama can often be found hanging around cool cafes in hipster districts and the homes of groovy green thumbs all over Australia.

The Basic Kokedama Kit by Fleurieu Gifts makes a perfect gift for anyone who loves a to get down and dirty, likes a little diy, has caught the indoor plant craze or just appreciates something a little different. Or, you may have admired these moss balls from afar and like the thought of making your very own!

Each Basic Kokedama Kit contains sphagnum moss; kokedama soil mix (our own mix of bonsai soil, peat moss, bentonite clay and slow release fertiliser); natural jute twine; latex gloves and instructions as well as access to our online tutorial. Each kit contains enough materials to make either two small sized kokedama (approximately 10cm diameter), or one larger kokedama moss ball. All you will need is a plant, scissors and water. Our Complete Kokedama Kit comes with a plant provided so you can get started straight away.

Adults will have no problems creating their kokedama, however children under 10 will need a helping hand from a bigger person. This is not a toy and is not suitable for children aged 8 and under.
