The Fishbone cactus is easy to look after and requires little attention. Keep it in bright indirect light and let it dry out in between watering.

But what is the correct spelling?
Kokedama: A Japanese tradition, they are bowls made with moss on which the plant grows.
Kokodama: Our Kokodamas are based on the Japanese tradition but made with coconut fibre, hence the slight variation on their name!
