Creative Thinking Prompt: Make a Hanging Garden
Kokedama is a plant art form from Japan. As a style of bonsai, Kokedama has the plant roots wrapped in moss and bound in string. Originally, kokedama were miniature sculptured bonsai trees displayed in pottery. Today, kokedama has been adapted to a hanging garden from which a variety of plants are suspended in mid-air appearing as if they are floating.
