Hello,
I basically use the garden soil, sphagnum moss, pine bark, charcoal, sand...the substrat that we use for horticulture. It depends on the accent species, for the black pines. I used 2/5 garden soil with yellow clay, 1/5 horticlture soil, 1/5 pine bark, 1/5 charchoal.

My technique is a bit different from schools making kokedama in Japan. I recreate a substrat that allows to the green moss to develop naturally with the accent plants. In this way, we have a more natural composition. We also have a natural green moss 'prairie' effect and it will be easy to maintain.

Regards,
Giang

Thank you,
The immensity of Nature is almost borderless. The art of Kokedama highlights the simple beauty of nature in a free way from an anonymous grass to a well respected tree. I use of some mud figurines from Penjing to give us the idea of the scale and to emphasize the content of the general composition.
