Kokedama are a form of Japanese Bonsai art that originated in the Edo Period in Japan, between the 1600s and 1800s. They originally were created as an alternative to Bonsai, giving them the nick name “Poor Man’s Bonsai”. Kokedama, which literally translates to “moss ball” in English, was considered a cheap alternative to the beloved art of Bonsai, which can cost between hundreds and thousands of dollars to maintain, even today. The kokedama allows us to observe and appreciate plants through an artistic lens that highlights its naturally zen aesthetic.
