Coco-Fibre Plant Care Guidelines

Coco-Fibre plant care guidelines

Tranquil Plants are Kokedama which are sometimes called "Japanese string gardens" or "Kokedama hanging gardens". We also make our special bonsai kokedama Coco-Fibre plants. Here are some good general guidelines and you can also find more information in the frequently asked questions page too.

General Care

-If the plant feels ‘light’ then the plant needs to be watered. Follow guidelines above.

-For more details on your plant please read CARE and FAQs on the individual plant pages. We have added simple pictures on how much light/sun and water your plant will need to be happy.

-Make sure you fully submerge the moss ball under the water, so can see it bubble.

-If any leaves go brown or spotted cut them off from the stem so it doesn’t affect the rest of the plant.

-For the Coco-Fibre to stay fresh, it helps to give it a spray of water now and again when it feels dry. This will depend on the humidity in your home.

-Feeding is done by adding the liquid fertiliser to the water when watering the plant. We would advise once a month but not in winter time.

-On rare occasions, mould can form on the Coco-Fibre. This will be due to too much watering or lack of air around the plant. If this happens, wipe off the mould with diluted washing up liquid.

If roots grow out of the Coco-Fibre ball which is rare, you can:

  1. Leave them as it doesn't affect the plant and creates an interesting look. 
  2. Trim them.

If a Coco-Fibre ball string loosens, slacken it a bit more and re-tie to bottom of the plant.
