Tropical  by Ashley Camper Photography 

The first time I saw a wonderful display of kokedama, a variation of Japanese bonsai, hanging against a stark white wall, I never imagined how easy it would be to create this plant-and-string look. “Kokedama” means “moss ball” in Japanese; it is made by transferring a succulent, small fern or other plant into a ball of soil held together with moss and colorful string or twine, which is also used to hang the plants. These string gardens look great hanging in homes and are a fun way to bring the outdoors in. Follow along with floral designer Mandy Grace of Hawaii as she walks us through how to make a cool hanging-plant string garden.
