Container free gardening: KOKEDAMA!

Gardens have always have a rich history ....and the Japanese back in the day changed the face of indoor gardening by their innovations.(Ko Kay Da Ma) is a ball of moss covered soil with arranged plants. Unlike other bonsai style its history is not so old and it's said the idea originated from Nearai, which was a popular bonsai style during the Edo era in Japan, and is a bonsai grown first in a pot and taken out of the pot and set on a stand to enjoy without a pot. In the Nearai style, the bonsai was grown so fully and tightly in the pot that the root and soil would maintain its shape when taken out of the pot.
Personally, I think it's a very poetic and sustainable solution for indoor or balcony gardens,window box garden or any space constricted gardens in the city.iv always had a massive issue with the plastic pots freely used these days with the steady decline of quality "khumbars" Marathi mud pot makers there are hardly any eco friendly options left out there....kokedama to me is the thin ray of hope that we have to achieve a truly sustainable and eco friendly garden.
