Aloe 'Oik' Kokedama
A 90s spin-off from the bonsai art form, 'kokedama' translates from the Japanese to 'moss ball'. Traditionally wrapped in living moss, at Greenovia Crafts we use a variety of lower maintenance natural fibers to contain plant roots in our own mixes of organic soil. Each plant ball is finished off with biodegradable twine to form a potless houseplant design.
Kokedama look great displayed au naturel on waterproof surfaces or sat in a dish, or may be hung vertically in hangers. Display one solo or in an arranged 'string garden' for an unexpected bit of living art in your home.
Aloe 'oik' is a non-medicinal aloe hybrid introduced in 2013. This succulent has triangular, blue-green leaves with fantastic-looking pinkish teeth. Likes lots of bright, indirect light and watering only after the soil has completely dried out. Detailed care guidance is available here.
This design features coco fiber and pink twine. Overall, about 4.5" tall with a ball diameter of 3.5".
Please note that each design is living and handmade. As such, variations in plant color, size, shape, etc. should be expected.
