Kokedama is the Japanese word for moss ball and literally translates from “koke” meaning moss and “dama” meaning ball.
Through step-by-step instructions and clear photographs, Coraleigh Parker shows you how to make a beautiful kokedama by wrapping the roots of a cyclamen in a ball of moss-covered soil.
Kokedama are unique self-contained way of showcasing your plants with no need for a pot!
