Indoor hanging baskets? Who needs them! Learn all about the Japanese art of creating pot-less suspended plants, known as kokedama, from New Zealand hanging plant extraordinaire and botanist, Coraleigh Parker. Coraleigh's moss ball creations, featuring orchids, air plants, cacti, succulents, flowering bulbs, tropical plants and even small trees and herbs, are suspended in mid-air and supported by nothing more than a series of strings, intricately wrapped, cocoon style, around a root ball. Kokedamas are very simple to make and have a magical quality; by suspending them in the air with string, with Coraleigh’s help and 25 easy-to-follow projects, you can create a hanging garden inside your home in no time. Decorating with indoor plants has never been more popular and, following on from terrariums, concrete pot planting and the obsession with fern, cacti and succulents, contemporary kokedama is the next trend that’s spreading fast. Kokedama is the ultimate botanical trend as it offers everything through a single, versatile and inexpensive craft: you can turn any of your favourite plants into a kokedama “on a string”!
