Plant, soil, moss, twine—that's all you need to create the exciting form of bonsai known as koke (moss) dama (ball).
Moss Ball Bonsai provides all the information you need to make these self-contained gardens, using different types of plants—from flowering trees and ferns to grasses and cacti. A sampling of 100 different kokedama shows how even the most common of house plants can shine in this appealing no-pot environment, while a section on mosses acquaints you with the many tones and textures of this versatile plant family.
With this bonsai guide, you will learn how to:
Create and maintain a healthy home for your miniature garden's root system
Use inexpensive house plants and cuttings as the basis of your kokedama
Make beautiful (and quirky) group plantings within a single project
Find, collect and propagate moss
Whether resting on a pottery dish or suspended in the air, these little indoor gardens are a wonderful way to add a touch of artistry and greenery to your home or work space.
