This activity is great for people to do a hands-on garden project that does not take a lot of time.

Hi there Everyone:

I want to share activity photos with you when we made the Kokedamas. It was a successful activity this month and the residents named theirs as they know that talking to plants make them stronger!

Hi there

We would like to do this. How many parts of coir/potting soil do you need. Also how many does it depending on the size we make I know, approx. How much moss should I get?

Hi, Try this recipe-- Mix equal parts of peat moss and potting mix or bonsai soil together. Slowly add in water and mix until a consistency develops, forming a soil ball that stays together, about the size of a grapefruit/large orange. We get the moss in a block and it makes up to 10 litres of wet product, so it goes a long way. Adding some Perlite to the mix, about two handfuls to a 9 lt bucket will help keep the mix aerated for water to be absorbed. Hope this helps, Kathie.

We make these each year and they are very successful and easy to make. We put a longer hanging string on ours and the residents hang them from their verandas or they give them to friends and families as a gift.
