Using string, moss, grass, and bowls or a glass reservoir – plants are transformed into suspended living works of art that are a variation of the Japanese botanical style, kokedma. Kokedama takes presentational aesthetics outside the box—literally. Kokedama are made by transferring your plant out of its pot and into a ball of soil held together with moss and string. String gardens are simple, fun to make, and really tie the room together.

What you will need:

  • Tiny plants (succulents and baby ferns work well)
  • Peat soil, cacti soil, clay mud
  • Dry sphagnum moss
  • Scissors
  • Cotton thread
  • Twine, hemp or other strings
  • Gloves (option)
  • Jar of water
  • Bowl (optional)
