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! 

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 √ė 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. 

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.
