Kokedamas, an alternative version of the bonsai, originated in Japan in the 1600’s. Now they are making a big resurgence as they look incredible and are easily transported to decorate any area of the home.

Besides hanging from of string, these moss balls can be placed on decorative plates to be used as feature pieces. They are a breeze to dress up for special events and also make fantastic gifts.
