Mini Succulent Kokedama

$28.00

Succulents and Cactus are the perfect plant for forgetful gardeners. Care is easy, and succulents can add structure and interests to any space. Best in full sun like a patio they can be inside where they receive a good amount of sun through a window. These plants are chosen at random, you comment a particular kind I will do my best to accommodate.

Mini Kokedama are in a moss ball about 10cm in diameter.

 

A Kokedama is a bit like a peat-pot; the water is absorbed through the moss into the root ball and likewise the roots can through and around the moss. Like a peat-pot you can plant your kokedama, moss and all, into a pot or the ground if it seems to need transplanting or has grown too big. This moss has 2 main features,to contain the soil and to hold moisture around the plant.

 

HOW TO WATER- To water your Kokedama, simply place it plant side up onto a bucket or sink of room temperature water. You must soak your kokedama to allow the water to get right into the center. Soak for 5-10 minutes or until saturated, DO NOT leave it sitting in water for longer than this, you will only encourage the string to rot raster and fungi/mold to grow. On the flip side, if it drank up all the water very quickly, you may need to add some more to the bucket. Unsure?- the fail safe way is to submerge the entire ball (you may need a big bucket of water) and hold it under until there are no bubbles escaping.If you keep in inside, you may want to place into a colander to drip dry for a minute before returning to it's home.
FREQUENCY- Soak around every 2 weeks. However, you must consider the kind of plant, where you have it and time of year.
