The name, Wandering Dude, is derived from its propensity ability to root and thrive in different environments. This plant's easy-care nature, unique colours, and fast growth have made it a popular plant. You'll find it hard to stop this one from growing! It can trail or hang and looks best left trailing from a shelf or hanging.
Our eco-friendly Kokodama bowls are made in Sri Lanka in collaboration with local communities, every bowl sold will help projects that give school children a better future, and they are an eco alternative to displaying the most beautiful plants at home.
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!

Plant Care Tips: The Wandering Dude Kokodama
- Allow the soil to dry out in between waterings. In the winter, they will appreciate frequent misting.
- Make sure to remove the plant from your Kokodama before watering it and place it back once the container is not dripping.
- You can feed it monthly with a half-strength liquid fertiliser. Pinch back long vining tendrils to encourage branching and fullness.
- This plants like bright, indirect light and slightly moist soil.
- Wandering Dudes really don't age well and no matter what you do, at some point, they will start losing leaves at the base, while their long legs keep growing. This is not a problem, the best anti-ageing treatment is to propagate it by taking cuttings and burying the ends in fresh potting soil.

Who is the Wandering Dude?
The most frequently used common name is actually 'Wandering Jew,' stemming from the plant's ability to adapt and thrive in any environment. We've gone for an alternative name, used in some (more conscientious) plant communities.
Fun fact: The name 'Zebrina' comes from its zebra-like leaves.
