DIY – Kokedama Orchids

Making a kokedama with an Orchid is a perfect choice. That’s possible since this houseplant has aerial roots for taking up nutrients and the pot is really only there to stand it up, which can be done more unusually and more naturally if you wrap the roots up in a moss ball. It’s easily done and looks amazing.

Fold the moss around the roots and try to keep as much of the root ball inside the moss as possible.
