Begonia Kokedama

Begonia Kokedama


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.
