  1. Pothos Varieties (Epipremnum Aureum)

Epipremnum Aureum Variegata

The Golden Pothos is perhaps one of the stable plants in a household due to their pretty much unkillable and easy going nature. This makes these tropical plants an excellent choice for being grown in kokedama, especially for beginners, as they are forgiving if something goes wrong and adapt well to an environmental or growing media change. The Golden Pothos will look stunning when allowed to hang from a kokedama ball and since these plants aren’t too picky, they’re suitable for rooms with low light.

  1. Peperomia Prostrata (String of Turtles)

Peperomia Prostrata are a great choice to be grown in a kokedama as they have a shallow root system. This means that the plants can easily be fplanted inside the kokedama ball and wouldn’t need to be transferred to a bigger growing environment anytime soon. Peperomia Prostrata are also known as the String of Turtles due to their uniquely colored leaves that resemble the shell of a turtle. 

  1. Ceropegia Woodii (String of Hearts)

Ceropegia Woodii, also known as the String of Hearts, is a popular houseplant that is very easy to grow in almost any environment as long as they are provided with bright, indirect light. Their popularity is due to their easy-to-care-for nature and for their striking visual appearance: pairs of heart-shaped leaves that have playful colors and when provided with enough light, turn a notch of pink. Ceropegia Woodii are pretty impretencious and can be grown in kokedama without a issue as they don’t have a large root system and wouldn’t mind to be bound in a kokedama ball at all. 

  1. Ivy (Hedera Helix) 

Ivy, usually grown as outdoor plants, might just be the new trendy houseplant to have around. These plants are pretty sturdy, and can survive and thrive in a variety of environments. Ivy can adapt well to grow in a kokedama ball and will look aestetically beautiful as a hanging plant. Ivy are a great chose for those that want to bring a touch of wild forest nature to their homes. 

  1. Bird’s Nest Fern

Looking for a table centerpiece that brings freshness and a sense of calmness? Bird’s Fern Nest are beginner-friendly houseplants that can be grown with ease in a kokedama ball. Their gorgeous foliage has a fresh shade of green and can brighten up any spot in a room. These plants grow upwards, with their leaves coming in a circular pattern from the center of the stem. This makes them a great table centerpiece choice when planted in a kokedama. Oh, and an added bonus apart from looking just gorgeous: the Bird’s Nest Fern is also one of the best CO2 absorbers.
