Maranta leuconeura "Red" Kokedama (苔玉)
Kokedama is a method of bonsai originating in Japan. It compacts the roots of a plant and encases them in moss.
We love Maranta! They are phototropic which means they move slowly throughout the day to capture light and at night they close upward a bit. This is how it got the nickname of "prayer plant". These kokedama are roughly 4" in diameter.
Water every 7-10 weeks as the moss on the kokedama feels very dry. To water, either rest them in a dish of water or submerge them in a bucket for roughly 10-15 minutes until the moss feels hydrated and spongy. Provide strong filtered light to direct sun.All of our plants are ethically sourced from certified U.S. nurseries. We strongly condemn the poaching of plants or wild collection.
