Ponytail 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.
Beaucarnia recurvata, known as the ponytail palm, is actually a type of succulent and not a true palm. It needs bright light at least half the time and likes its soil to dry out completely before being watered again. Detailed care guidance is available here.
This design features preserved moss and natural-colored twine. Soil ball is about 5.5" in diameter and 3.5" tall. With the plant, the overall footprint is about 20" wide and 9" tall.
Please note that each design is living and handmade. As such, variations in plant color, size, shape, etc. should be expected.
