1. How long does a Kokedama Last?
The moss ball will last from 1 to 3 years, that will depend on the plant and size of the kokedama you choose; And also, the environment of that plant.
Once it's time for maintenance you could:
1.Contact us, we offer the re-do service from $30 (service available only for Miami Dade, Broward, Palm Beach County and some other cities of Florida ask to know more)
2. Take the plant out of the moss ball and plant it in a pot
3. Take the plant out of the moss ball and plant it in the ground and give it back to nature.For any step you would like to take we are here to guide you during the process.
2. How to submerge the Kokedama?
The moss makes the watering system simpler by absorbing and draining very well.
It is recommended to submerge at least 1/2 of the moss ball in potable water. The submerging time could be from 5 to 15 minutes every one, two, three or even four weeks, depending on the type of plant and the temperature.
After the kokedama is submerged, it has to drain for 20 minutes. Then it is put back onto the plate.
3. How deep to submerge my Kokedama?
¾ of the moss ball. Some plants don’t like the water touching the leaves such as the African violets.
4. What Kind of water should I use for my Kokedamas?
Room temperature potable water (filtered, distilled, purified, bottled) Rain water if you're able to collect, it has more oxygen and this promotes plant growth.
5. Light for the plants
This depends on the type of plant, we usually informed this at the moment of the sale or in our care detailed instructions.
Also, you can check our collections by light where we classify the kokedamas to their ideal light requirement. If still uncertain, please contact us.
6. What plant food should I use and how often?
For kokedamas with flowering, we use Scotts super bloom: 2 tablespoons per gallon of water once a month.For kokedamas without flowering, we use Miracle-Gro Liquid all purpose concentrate (yellow gallon) : 1 teaspoon per gallon of water every 2 weeks or 2 tablespoons per gallon of water once a month.
*you could do a separate container of a gallon and do the mix. Then, use this container every-time you need to apply plant food to your kokedama. Or else, you would need to do how much water you use, in order to know how many tablespoons you need to apply directly. e.g. Scotts super bloom. If you use half of gallon, apply 1 tablespoon*
7. How often should I submerge my Kokedama?
The submerging time could be from 5 to 15 minutes every one, two, three or even four weeks, depending on the type of plant, size of the moss ball and the temperature.
It is encouraged to lift your kokedama. Once it’s very VERY lightweight, it needs water. This is a good way to learn and connect with your plant.
We offer detailed instructions on the back of the tag of the plant you choose.
8. What do I do if the moss of my Kokedama is turning white?
The white that appears in your kokedama is because of the humidity the moss holds with temperature changes.Our recommendations are the following:1. Brush the affected area gently.2. Mix 1 part water 1 part hydrogen peroxide.3. Spray the affected area.Repeat this process every time the white appears. Another suggestion to avoid the white appearing is every time you submerge the Kokedama let it drain for 20 min and squeeze gently. So, the moss doesn’t stay as damp.
9. What if some leaves turn yellow or brown?
If only one or two leaves are turning brown and you see new ones coming out, it’s ok. It is a normal cycle for a live plant to replace its leaves. If most of the leaves are turning yellow or brown, please contact us before the plant dies.
10. Where to put my Kokedama?
It is very important to put your kokedama on a flat base, if it's a bowl it needs to be big enough so the moss can be ventilated.
Do not put in a tight container where it covers the whole moss ball, this can create too much humidity and it can damage the plant and create fungus in the moss ball.
