Kokedama, kusamono, wabikusa: exotic forms of phytodesign

Everyone knows what bonsai is, but what the three magic words of the Kokedam, kusamono, and wabicus mean is not known to everyone. Naturally, these words are Japanese, and it is logical that all three directions originate from Japan. The Japanese are generally very interesting people. They like to observe, look, analyze. In everything they seek deep meaning and philosophy. And the Japanese are very fond of nature. But not like some, tearing flowers and putting them in a vase ... They create nature, care for it and cherish it. Even from the cultivation of domestic plants made several types of art. Let us analyze them in order, because all of them are beautiful in their own way.

So,kokedama- from the Japanese "coca" - moss, "lady" - the ball. Literally - "a ball of moss." Kokedama originates from bonsai, but it can take years to grow bonsai, and kokedamu can be done in a few hours!

In Asia, the kokedama is very common and even exhibitions are held, but in Russia there are very few people who know about such art.

Kokedama is made from special Japanese peat from rice fields, which is enriched with clay - “Keto”. Since the Kokedama is a ball of moss, you will need sphagnum and green moss for decoration. In more detail, we will discuss the Kokedam master class using the available materials in Russia another time. But in short, they take a flower, form a ball of peat at the rhizome and stick it over with moss on top and fix it with a rope. That's all. Such blooming balls are obtained. In my opinion, a great idea for a wedding decor 🙂

FROMkusamonothings are different. “Kusa” is grass, “mono” is a plant. Kusamono is even closer to bonsai, so much closer that is its complement. As a rule, kusamono is located in small vessels. which are placed in the palm, and planted in these vessels - grass. Yes Yes! Usual beautiful, green grass that will characterize the season of the bonsai and complement it.

People liked plants so much that they have recently recognized kusamono as a separate art form, because the plants for kusumono need to be chosen very meticulously so that they complement each other and not argue.

Well, the third type of art -Wabicusa- it is the "Moss moss". It's simple - take a ball of soil, we plant grass on it and then from these green hummocks make up the composition in the aquarium! You can pour water, but you can not.

That's how you can decorate the aquarium with a wafer

And you can just enjoy the plants on the windowsill

All three types of this overseas art remind us of the unity and preservation of nature.
