Get ready to create your very own stunning traditional Japanese kokedama with our DIY Kokedama Kit! This kit is perfect for beginners and allows you to learn the art of kokedama making, a technique that involves creating beautiful moss balls for your indoor plants.
This Kokedama Kit has everything for the diy enthusiast to make their own kokedama moss ball, complete with one perfectly sized plant! Kokedama, also known as moss balls, originate from Japan as an alternative form of bonsai where they were cheekily known by the Japanese as ‘poor man’s bonsai’. This botanical art form sees a plant’s roots encased in moss, then covered in a special soil mix, which is then covered again in moss to form a moss ball that provides all the goodness a plant needs to thrive. Sometimes known as string gardens, kokedama can be displayed beautifully by hanging, or sitting in a pretty dish as a table centerpiece.

Our Complete Kokedama Kit makes a perfect gift for yourself or anyone who loves plants and prefers a good diy to a ready made product.

Each Kit contains sphagnum moss; kokedama soil mix (our own mix of bonsai soil, peat moss, bentonite clay and slow release fertiliser); natural jute twine; one indoor plant; latex gloves and instructions. Each kit contains enough dry materials to make either two small sized kokedama (approximately 10cm), or one larger kokedama moss ball. One small assorted indoor plant will be included, but you can add another plant and extra materials if you wish!

Adults will have no problems creating their kokedama, however children under 10 will need a helping hand from a bigger person. Once made, they are a breeze to look after, needing only a soak in water once a week in Summer and every fortnight (or so) in Winter.

We have been supplying DIY kokedama kits since 2014!

Unfortunately, as this product contains soil it cannot be sent to WA, NT or TAS.
