Dragon Tree 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.
Dracaena marginata, known as the dragon tree, is generally considered to be a good air purifying houseplant, adept at filtering out xylene and trichloroethylene in particular. Dragon trees also have a reputation for being indestructible.
If you're new to houseplants or simply have a brown thumb, this might be the plant for you. It does well in light shade and should be watered to maintain moist soil. Detailed care guidance is available here.
This design features dried Spanish moss and natural-colored twine. Overall, about 14" tall with a ball diameter of 4.5".
Please note that each design is living and handmade. As such, variations in plant color, size, shape, etc. should be expected.
