This dynamic piece of living floral art is a stunner.
A kokedama literally translates from “koke” meaning moss and “dama” meaning ball. Kokedama is the Japanese art of growing plants in a moss-covered ball of soil.
For this elaborate moss ball, I used native vines to secure the moss, and nestled the plant into a lofty bed of Spanish moss and pebbles to promote humidity.
This highly coveted plant is called a Begonia Maculata - and while it sounds like the latest starbucks latte, it isn’t!
The plant’s exotic look has silver polka dots that seem painted on olive-colored leaves with crimson-colored undersides.
The cloche is a refined and functional piece that ensures high humidity.
If you’re looking for something unusual that attracts attention, this over-the-top begonia, set in a beautiful kokedama is a great choice.
Simple to care for, she will tolerate lower light - like bright indirect light from a window.
Please scroll through the photos to see her size - as she is pictured with a ruler. She is very tall - about 13 inches tall and 12 inches wide.
