Kokedama is a Japanese gardening technique that involves wrapping a plant in moss instead of placing it in a pot. The effect? An almost otherworldly elegance. See Grow Gorgeous Houseplants for examples of the best varieties to use, then follow a few easy steps to make your own. Watering your plant is simple: Just dunk the moss and root ball in water until they feel heavy.
Set plant in bowl’s center. Tie ends of cut wire at top of root ball. Lift plant and moss out of bowl. Continue winding spooled wire around moss until secure. Cut wire; tuck into moss. Display by hanging with filament or placing in dish.
