- The soaking frequency depends on the humidity in the room, the temperature and the season of the year.
- Watch your Kokedama to keep it from drying out too much.
- Moss likes sprinkling with water. Using a spray of water, gently spray the moss – once a day (watch out for the wooden stand).

If the weather is nice in summer, your Kokedama can go outside as wind, dew and sunlight are also important for the plant’s development.
