Also known as the Wax Plant or Porcelain Flower, the Hoya Carnosa is a climbing, trailing plant with thick, almond-shaped leaves. They are really easy to take care of making them a great plant for beginners, and, in time, they may produce small and very fragrant star-shaped cream flowers that grow in bunches.
Hand-tied in the classic Japanese Kokedama technique our Mossballs are made with water retaining coconut peat mixture and real moss, keeping the roots of the plants moist.
Dimensions: Approx 15-20cm high, Ball Ø approx 25cm
DISPLAY & INSTALLATION
Mossballs can be installed in two ways: Suspended or Standing.
All of our Mossballs come with a free extra cord and a carabiner.
Install a U-Shaped hook, attach the cord with a carabiner, and simply clip in your mossball.
For a standing installation, simply place your Mossball within a presentation-dish on whichever surface you like.
Top Tip: Try a Japanese-inspired Mossball Installation by hanging 3 or more Mossballs, at different heights. Use the same Mossball variety to create a statement, or mix them up for a more motley effect.
