Learn the art of creating a Japanese-style Moss Ball!  Hands on, messy and absolutely beautiful! What is Kokedama? Kokedama is a form of Japanese garden art. There are many types of planting in Japan, and these sweet friends are a combination of nearai (without a pot), kusamono (mossy or grassy elements), and bonsai planting styles. The roots of the plant are bound in soil and moss to create a pot-less home for a houseplant.
