    Hello All,

    I know I was away from IL for a while.. Work took over my life. Now its holiday season here so thought to continue my hobby, yes obviously its gardening.

    Last week I was just doing google on terrarium class but accidentally i got to know about the class on Kokedama. As you have heard about Bonsai and now hear kokedama. If you happened to go to the first nursery near lalbagh they have these selling for 800-1000 Rs. A very simple to do.

    Koke - Moss + dama - Ball.

    The plant will be covered with moss and tied into a ball. This is also know as string garden. This is the best for people with less space and less time. I did three more like this with succulents & jade in one ball, amaryllis and another flowering plant, name not knows. I will upload the pictures later.

    The material you need is

    Nice idea to grow plants other than in the soil medium. Would prefer to use coir (though I don't know how successful I will be).

    Thanks for sharing.

    No coir is not good, select which absorb water and hold for long time, refer the link I have posted
