Scientific Name: Ficus benjamina

PLANT BACKGROUND

The Weeping Fig tree with its deep green loose foliage and long trailing stems is something of an anomaly when tied into a Mossball. But somehow it works! And has an unusual yet classical look. We really like it. Benjaminas are some of the easiest indoor plants - with an appetite for any light condition.

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. 35-45cm high, Ball Ø approx 25cm 

DISPLAY & INSTALLATION
Mossballs can be installed in two ways: 

-- Suspended: All of our Mossballs come with free extra cord and a carabiner.
Install a U-Shaped hook, attach the cord with carabiner, and simply clip in your mossball.

-- Standing: For a standing installation, simply place your Mossball within a presentation-dish on whichever surface you like. 

LEAD TIME 
We like to send you the healthiest, freshest Plants, and your mossball is made specifically for you. Kindly note that we can have a lead time of up to 1 week. Trust us, it's worth the wait! 

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. Check out our Mossball Collection to see what's in stock.
