Creeping ficus kokedama

Creeping ficus

Kokedama are a form of bonsai, and make an elegant, unusual display for plant enthusiasts.  The soil mix for the root ball is long fiber sphagnum moss, a special soil mix, and potters clay.  It is covered in live moss, then wrapped securely with waxed thread.  Put them where they will get bright morning light, or dappled afternoon sunshine.  Try to heavily mist the moss every day for best results, and soak the root ball every week or so.  Wait till you can feel it becoming lightweight, then soak thoroughly till it draws water all the way to the top.  Don’t let it stay saturated, it will suffocate.

 

Cryptanthus are perfect for Kokedama. You can sit them on a plate with pebbles or a grate, to allow air on most of the surface of the moss
