Scientific Name: Ficus benjamina
The Weeping Fig tree with it's 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 by a skilled Cape Town artisan, Nuno Mossballs are made with water retaining coconut peat mixture and real moss, keeping the roots of the plants moist.
Dimensions: Approx 50cm high, Ball Ø approx 20cm
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 2 weeks. Trust us, it's worth the wait!
Mossballs can be installed in two ways: Suspended or Standing.
All of our Nuno 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.
For a standing installation, simply place your Nuno 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. Check out our Nuno Mossball Collection to see what's in stock.
