About the Kokedama - Bonsai

Kokedama is a bonsai garden art which literally translates as moss ball. This unique trend has seen a recent resurgence in its popularity.

A Kokedama is a style of Japanese bonsai where the bonsai roots are wrapped in a moss ball tied with string. The moss ball is made from a base of 50:50 peat moss and bonsai soil to form a neutral soil environment. This soil is then rolled into a ball and a bonsai, with most of it's roots exposed, is planted into the middle. Green moss is then worked around the root ball to finish.

How to Water

Water your Kokedama Bonsai weekly or as the moss ball becomes light and dry. Mist the moss ball between each watering to help keep the moss looking fresh.

To water your Kokedama Bonsai, fully submerge the moss ball under the water so it bubbles. When the bubbles stop, your bonsai is fully watered.

Feed your Kokedama once a month throughout the growing season. Use a liquid bonsai feed in the bowl of water.

Light Conditions

Your bonsai likes lots of sun light. Be sure to turn them around once a week to ensure even growth. Keep it in a bright space away from a heat source such as a radiator. Too much heat will dry the moss out.

Soil Conditions

It's rare for the Bonsai roots to come out from the ball, but it can happen. This look can give a stimulating and unusual style to your bonsai, but if you want to keep the roots hidden, you can either trim escaping roots or re-moss the tree. 

Seasonal Information 

Your bonsai tree will need seasonal pruning in Spring, Summer and Autumn. Use a set of bonsai scissors to trim the leaves off when they become too full. Bonsai trees like to be pruned. During the autumn/winter seasons, your bonsai may lose half of its leaves. This is normal behavior as it prepares for a winter hibernation.

Each Kokedama should last for about 2 years before needing to be re-mossed. You can re-moss your Kokedama yourself.
