Wonderful String Gardens

Let your plants hang from the ceiling!
Spring is the best time for arranging green elements at home. With the first rays of spring sun there always comes the need for contact with nature and desire to invite nature home. I was once inspired to make Modern Zen Gardens and I’d like to stay in Asian style. That is why I’d love to show you String Gardens which are Japanese moss balls called kokedama.

Kate from Design Sponge uses Aura Scaringi’s tutorial to make her green patches hanging in the room. The plant balls are rather messy but extremely easy to make. The only thing you have to care about is the right soil consistency to make a solid ball. Anyway, it’s worth trying as the plants look extraordinary.

Get dirty and decorate your flat with these beautiful green balls. We’re waiting to see them on our fan page.

    Water it with a mist spray bottle once a day (do this early in the morning if you can).
