D.I.Y. Indoor Gardening: Kokedama Plants

Join us as we create kokedama ("moss ball") plants for this D.I.Y. indoor gardening project. A variation of Japanese bonsai, kokedama is a small plant bound in a ball of clay-like soil and moss. The plant can then be suspended from string to incorporate into a hanging garden or simply placed in a decorative dish.
