What is Kokedama?
Kokedama is a green moss covered type of bonsai.
Unlike other bonsai styles, its history is not so old and it's said the idea originated from Nearai, which was a popular bonsai style during the Edo(AD1603) era in Japan, and is a bonsai grown first in a pot and taken out of the pot and set on a stand to enjoy without a pot. In the Nearai style, the bonsai was grown so fully and tightly in the pot that the root and soil would maintain its shape when taken out of the pot.
