It is a plant whose roots are wrapped with a mixture of clay, earth and peat moss.
This bulb is wrapped with moss.
The technique comes from Japan and dates from the 90s.
How to 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. Kokedama means ''moss ball'' in Japanese.
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.
You can purchase the matching support, or place your kokedama on a nice dish.
About Hydnophytum papuanum - Maze plant
This plant is a miracle of nature and carries a great secret! It houses a system of corridors in the tuber of the plant. The tuber is a thickening of the stem and is therefore technically not a true tuber. In the tropics, tropical ants live and live here, the plant and the ants help each other with food, they live in symbiosis. In our living rooms, however, no ants live in it, the corridors are empty and form a system, a maze! The maze plant is for us a mysterious phenomenon from nature that gives our living rooms a tropical atmosphere.
