The 70's are definitely back! These plants brings lots of memories from people all over.
They are great in hanging baskets and also really great in kokedamas. They love being rootbound so there is no worry if they also do in kokedamas.
Bright indirect sunlight. Exposure to afternoon sun can burn the leaves. However, they can still thrive in low light conditions. They will just grow slower and may not produce plantlets (baby spider plants)
Water only when the kokedama is light and dry. Overwatering causes the roots to rot and it is fairly hard for the plant to recover. It likes the soil to be dry in between watering.
Water every 2 -3 weeks in the warmer months (in summer check weekly especially in warmer days and may need watering weekly) and monthly in winter.
Misting every now and again will increase the humidity surrounding the plant. Or place a glass of water behind it.
HOW TO WATER?
Submerge the whole ball in a bowl, bucket or sink up to the top of the ball. While it is light and dry, you may need to hold it down until the bubbles disappear. Then let it sit in water for 15 minutes. Take it out of the water and let drip dry.
FERTILISER, PLANT FOOD, SOIL CONDITIONER
Fertilise monthly in spring and summer to encourage growth and NONE in winter. In the colder months, this plant generally hibernates. Therefore feeding with fertiliser won’t make it do much.
We use Munash organics with our plants and kokedamas as their products are gentle to the plants, plus they are ORGANIC! With the plant food, every 2 months is all you need to do.
Soil conditioners such as Seasol, is also good to use during the growth season. Therefore, using it fortnightly when you water the kokedama is also good for the devil’s ivy.
These care instructions serve as a guide only. The conditions in every home is different such as light, humidity, draft, heat, etc. and you know your home better than anyone else. These all affect the health and condition of your kokedama. We advise that you do a little bit of research prior to purchasing your kokedama.
