By Satoshi Sunamori
Plant, soil, moss, twine—that’s all you need to create the exciting form of bonsai known as koke (moss) dama (ball).
Moss Ball Bonsai provides all the information you need to make these self-contained gardens, using different types of plants—from flowering trees and ferns to grasses and cacti. A sampling of 100 different kokedama shows how even the most common of house plants can shine in this appealing no-pot environment, while a section on mosses acquaints you with the many tones and textures of this versatile plant family.
Whether resting on a pottery dish or suspended in the air, these little indoor gardens are a wonderful way to add a touch of artistry and greenery to your home or work space.

This book is very interesting. It describes the different kinds of mosses and how to display them in your home in various ways. I would recommend it if you are interested in making kokedemas and to learn the history behind them.

Some sites drag you through a maze of pop ups just to checkout. Never mind, you came to their site for convenience. It’s refreshing to see that some retailers are getting it, we don’t need prompts or pop ups. We’re pretty tech savvy or we would t be ordering online. Thank you Bloomist for getting it.
