Have you ever heard of a Kokedama? Well, I hadn't either until the other day when I met up with my friends from Green Diamond Coco Fiber to make some! You can make one too, we're going to show you how! You're going to need a few things:
First, dampen your coco with clean water. Shake off as much excess poting soil from the roots of your houseplant as possible. Then cover the roots with your moist coco fiber. Do your best to keep the coco in the shape of a ball.
Next, cover the ball of coco with hemp fiber. You'll find that the the fiber is soft and pulls apart, similar to cotton. Make sure all the coco is covered while trying to keep the fiber from overlapping too much.
Finally, use the hemp twine to hold it all together. Wrap the twine around the ball tight enough to keep its shape but not too tight as to hurt the plant.
Pull the twine through one of your loops. Leave enough twine left so the Kokedama can be hung and snip off the spool.
It's that simple! Watering is easy too, just submerge the Kokedama in clean water as needed.
