We saw briefly in the previous topic how to easily create a kokedama. Following some questions on facebook, on the page of art kokedama I complete this article, specifying where to find what you need.
Starting on the same approach to create a kokedama we will turn the three points that interest us: the plant, soil, moss.
Plants for kokedama:
You’ll find it in garden or in stores selling plants: DIY or furniture. A simple rule for the choice; taking plants for inside for kokedama who remain inside, and similar to the outside.
For kokedama intended to remain inside you will find nice stuff: ferns, ivy, and plants typically sold for indoor: ficus …
For outside the choice is huge : ferns, ivy, winter jasmine, honeysuckle, wisteria, clematis, roses, pines, maples, cinquefoil, hostas … the list is too long to detail completely but remember that your choice will greater.
Buy it :
If you want to use a perfect and easy to use substrate you can buy this one : kokedama soil from our french website ; we send it in European Union only. This is cheap and very convenient.
Do it yourself :
For the basic substrate you need clay, peat moss and potting soil. For clay you can take a ride in stores leisure creative, they sell for people who want to make ceramics. Sphagnum moss is sold in small packages in garden for orchids, pictured below. It will chop a little before adding to the mixture (you can rub it on a screen to save time). And the soil in gardening course.
The moss :
The moss is naturally outdoors on walls, forest etc … just find a cool, damp place. You can also ask your florist to sell you.
