Q. How do I water my Kokedama?


Kokedama is easy to water. Simply place the Kokedama in a shallow dish filled with water approximately 1-2cm deep for 10 minutes (leafy side up). Once your Kokedama has drawn up the water through the base, place it on a drying rack for 10 minutes til the excess water drains off and return to it's location, ensuring the Kokedama receives airflow to reduce the chance of mould. 

We recommend watering outdoor Kokedama once per week and indoor plants every 3 days approximately. As a general rule, your Kokedama will need water if it is light in weight and dry to touch. Once watered the Kokedama will be heavy in weight.

Succulents and cacti require very little water and like lots of sunlight. Please water them once every 2 weeks approximately, or beforehand if the leaves start to shrivel. 


Over watering or leaving your Kokedama in
water will cause it to mould and rot. The moss
ball must be allowed to dry out (dry to touch)
for the period recommended.

Many plants like to be misted with water from a spray bottle. We recommend lightly misting your plant regularly.

Q. Is Kokedama for indoor or outdoor plants?

A. Kokedama can be used for both indoor and outdoor plants. However, we suggest using hardy plants. Indoor plants such as Zanzibar hardly need water or care. Succulents make great outdoor Kokedama.
