Kokedama with Pilea Peperomioides.


It is a plant whose roots are wrapped with a mixture of clay, earth and peat moss.

This bulb is wrapped with moss. Kokedama means ''moss ball'' in Japanese

The technique comes from Japan and dates from the 90s.


Sometimes called the missionary's plant, it was brought to us by missionaries posted to China. The silver coin shape of its leaves gave it its Chinese name (Money Maker). Closer to home, our Flemish and Dutch neighbours call it the "pannenkoeken plant" or "pancake plant". Its leaves are round like pancakes.

The Pilea Peperomiodes has appeared in a number of fashion and interior design magazines and is one of the "must have" plants for any "green" interior.

Like most houseplants, it is important to avoid direct sunlight wherever possible, and to place this Komedama 2 or 3 metres from a window at a constant temperature of 16-27°C.

How do you maintain your kokedama:

Dip the mossball once a week for about an hour in water (if possible with rainwater) and wring it lightly with both hands or place a dish underneath.

The ball will be wet enough for the week.

If it is very hot, check that the moss ball is not too dry. (You will find that he weighs too lightly)

If necessary, soak twice a week.

Place it in a light place. Try to avoid direct sunlight.

We deliver the kokedama with a metal bar to hang it.

You can purchase the matching cage, or ask to deliver without a rod and place your kokedama on a nice scale.
