Who is Mister Kokedama?

Mister Kokedama is a business born out of the Covid-19 quarantine which gave us bouts of stir-craziness and an explosion of creative energy. What began as a unique and passionate past-time has blossomed into a one-of-a-kind homemade Kokedama business that we are incredibly excited about! Our love for plants, paired with an adoration for research, persistent attentiveness, and creativity has fueled this endeavor, and we could not be more excited to share with you everything that we have learned and what we can create!

We have expanded into retail!

What is a kokedama?

Kokedamas are a form of Japanese Bonsai art that originated in the Edo Period in Japan, between the 1600s and 1800s. They originally were created as an alternative to Bonsai, giving them the nick name “Poor Man’s Bonsai.” Kokedama, which literally translates to “moss ball” in English, was considered a cheap alternative to the beloved art of Bonsai, which can cost between hundreds and thousands of dollars to maintain, even today. The kokedama allows us to observe and appreciate plants through an artistic lens that highlights its naturally Zen aesthetic.

Not all those who wander are lost.
