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.
