|Kokedama using miniature hosta and fern|
Essentially, Kokodama is a Japanese art form, along the lines of Bonsai, but in this case a plant's roots are encased in a clay soil that's then covered in moss. The soil is part peat and part akadama (bonsai soil). Kokadam can hang indoors or out or be placed in a bowl, or be displayed on a platter or some other decorative object. Plants choices can vary from orchids, grasses, ferns, perennials and groundcovers to bulbs.
