Kokedama is the Japanese art of growing plants in a moss-covered ball of soil wrapped with string or mono-filament fishing line. They can be displayed on a decorative surface or hung by a string in a window. There is something inherently inviting and soothing about the form of Kokedama through the juxtaposition of its controlled and wild aspects. It is a manifestation of wabi-sabi or the Japanese art of discovering beauty in imperfection. All the elements which keep bonsai from fading into oblivion are also present in kokedama but a much more accessible format.

Kokedama evolved from the Nearai style of bonsai, which includes exposed roots as part of the aesthetic. Normally they are grown in a pot for such a long period that their roots fill the pot, and they can be removed and displayed without harming the tree. To stop the roots from drying during the transformation or root-ageing process, moss is placed over the roots to cover and protect them.


In coco fibre kokedama, green moss that covers the roots is replaced by a coir ball, which takes but a fraction of the maintenance efforts that green moss calls for; for instance, green moss tends to dry unless it’s watered as many as three times a week while coir fibre only needs to be watered once a week. Thus, coco fibre kokedama is a great way to deck out a home, cafe, restaurant, or public establishment without requiring a lot of maintenance efforts and resources.


The main difference, though, between a pot and a kokedama is the way the roots respond. In a pot, the roots always encounter water, so they continue to grow. In a Kokedama, however, the roots which come to the outside of the ball encounter air. If the air is dry, the roots stop growing. Instead of using long, fat roots to explore for water, the plant grows many fine roots within the ball.


Kokedama houseplants dissolve dangerous chemicals in the air such as benzene and transform carbon dioxide into life-giving oxygen. This can lead to increased concentration and productivity (between 10% -15% increase as the findings of multiple research studies reveal).
