Parlor Palm 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.
We love the lush look of this parlor palm, one of the most popular houseplant palms and on NASA's list of 50 indoor plants that clean the air. An easy-care plant, Chamaedorea elegans likes shade with some indirect light and watering only once the soil has completely dried out (better to underwater this plant than overwater it). Further care guidance is available here.
This design features preserved moss, and white and gold metallic twine. Overall, about 12" tall with a ball diameter of 5".
Please note that each design is living and handmade. As such, variations in plant color, size, shape, etc. should be expected.
