苔玉 

Ko Kay Da Ma (in englisch "moss ball") is a ball of moss on which an ornamental plant grows. They also had the nickname  "poor people's bonsai". This old cultivation method originated in Japan in the 17th century in what was then the capital Edo (now Tokyo). The Japanese economy was mainly based on the agricultural sector. The farmers lived in walled villages. An internal market developed in response to the end of foreign trade. At this moment of closure, these mooballs were born. Even then, the Japanese understood the positive effects of vegetation in their own four walls. In this way, they also enjoyed the beauty of nature with its invigorating effect in their homes. We love this way of planting and can actually testify that the plants in the moss pot are easier to handle. Soaking in water for a few minutes is enough to provide the plant with sufficient water. The watered moss balls also have a great side effect, they are excellent humidifiers.

Traditionally, the Kokedama were placed on bowls or flat plates. Today they are also often used as hanging plants.
