Moss ball , not Moth ball
I am making moss ball. What heck is that ? It is very easy to make and can be combine with small tree, vine, ground cover or weeds.Japanese call it "kokedama" koke= moss, dama= ball.
Moss have been used to cover soil of bonsai to make bonsai look good. But this time moss is the star, main thing.
I am making many kokedama and moss on drift wood.
Unlike regular bonsai,moss bonsai and kokedama are easy to make , easy to maintain, also very inexpensive to make.
Chenging tray is so easy and you have unlimied selection( almost). Tray can be soap dish, floor tile, naural flat stone, dish( for cooking), clay soucer,
ash tray, salsa cup ( I just got it from Wall Mart for $1.50) Some soucer has differnet colors, size and again those are inexpensive $2.00 to $8,00 mast case, some nice shape and material tray are more expensive, but $ 20.00 is most expensive. Wall Mart, Target is good place to find sorcers. Don't look in garden section. home decore, craft, kichen ware sections are best place to find soucer. Selection of soucers are unlimited and inexpensive.
You don't have to have many tools too.
Within next 2 weeks or so I make at least 20 of different shape and design and take photos and post it here. I have to ask to my friend to take photos,scan and post it here. I can't take photo of process of making moss ball and moss bonsai this time.
( Some day, Cady and I may able to offer class to teach how to make it.) ..........................yama
