Fun Facts & History about Kokedama:
The concept of Kokedama began as a way for Japanese people to stay connected to the forest while living in the city. The lack of man-made pots surrounding the plant mimics the natural environments in which plants grow and embodies the idea of mother nature being self-sufficient.
According to the Japanese, the green ball of moss is translated as maternal love and charity. The spherical shape of the ball is believed to add credence to the plant’s naturality while creating peacefulness and the Zen spirit.
Using Kokedama is also a practice that supports sustainability. The elimination of plastic flower pots, which is now replaced with moss balls, is an eco-friendly attribute that translates to less plastic use. Even decorative twines used to wrap the moss balls are biodegradable making it more sustainable.
