In English, “Kokedama” is the art of growing ornamental plants in a
ball covered with moss. It is also called “poor man’s bonsai”.
Tonight we are going to do something a little different: to learn by
doing. Alan and I will lead the program and members will have the opportunity
to build a moss ball, mount an orchid on it, then take it home. All
supplies will be provided by your Society: plant, moss,
mix for the center, fishing line, and wire for hanging the finished
product. Quantities are limited to the first 40, so come early to get
A few suggestions:
- Wear older clothes or bring an apron (moss and center mix will
- Pair up or work in groups. Everything can be done alone, but an
extra hand is very handy for several of the steps.
Tonight’s program is very different. I would greatly appreciate any
and all feedback that you care to share. Also members are allowed to
bring in plants for sale.
