Description

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
  • And more!

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.
