Kokedama is a Japanase word that means ‘moss ball’. The Guiana Chestnut is part of the Pachira genus of the Malvaceae family and to make our Money Tree ‘moss ball’, sphagnum moss is used to bind the roots. According to Chinese feng shui tradition, this plant brings good fortune and happiness to the home. Thus, they make great housewarming gifts.
Though our kokedamas share the same look, they are not the same with the traditional ones. Our kokedamas are crafts that were inspired from the original version.
The Guiana Chestnut thrives under partial shades to bright light but is recommended to be place indoor. To water, simply soak the ‘ball’ in a basin until thoroughly saturated. Each kokedama is made by hand by our passionate Terra crew, here in Malaysia.
