Do you know an as­pir­ing green thumb who is a lit­tle ne­glect­ful? A plant from this Park­wood busi­ness could be per­fect for them. A side project for uni­ver­sity lec­turer Su­san Sul­li­van, kokedama are small house­plants grown in balls of moss and mud. “It’s a form of bon­sai. Kokedama lit­er­ally trans­lates to “moss ball” (in Ja­panese),” Su­san says. They’re ideal in­door house plants be­cause they’re su­per easy to take care of and don’t re­quire di­rect sun­light. Su­san rec­om­mends her par­lour palm or birds nest va­ri­eties as the most stress-free up­keep, both cost­ing about $30 each. They can be or­dered on­line.
