What is Kokedama?
Kokedama is a Japanese word that can be loosely translated as ‘moss ball’. It’s an old traditional Japanese art form that was also called the ‘poor man’s bonsai’. Kokedama is the practice of removing a plant and its container and roots, surrounding it in a unique soil mixture, wrapping it in moss and binding it together. The original Japanese form of kokedama was then displayed on an altar-like platform, but modern approaches now see them suspended in the air to form miniature hanging gardens. At We Smell The Rain we have designed our own contemporary methods of hanging kokedama's, they are also happy sitting on their own to decorate any flat surface or bowl. To water a kokedama you simply soak it in a bowl of water once a week depending on the plant type.


Look forward to seeing you there!
