With four locations in central Ohio Columbus, Reynoldsburg, Westerville and Whitehall we have grown to be recognized as an industry leader and is well respected across the country as one of the best flower shops in the country. Locally, Flowerama Columbus has been selected as a Consumers’ Choice winner seven out of the last 8 years. a second generation, family owned and operated floral design firm.

We opened our first location at the corner of Brice and Main Street in Reynoldsburg, Ohio on June 23, 1990. For the first five years of operation we were the highest volume Flowerama store in the country. Today we have three generations of family members and every single one has worked in the flower shops at one point of their lives. In fact, at least one member from each generation is currently working in the flower shops in one way or another. Now this is not always the case, because some of our youngest generation travels off to college from time to time, but they often help out if only at the holidays. Flowerama Columbus offers four great locations where you can shop. However, if you prefer online shopping, we have made a large investment in our computer system allowing you the a user friendly environment to browse our products and then have them shipped any where in the country.

Kokedama

An interesting  Japanese Art is called Kokedama. In this style of growing plants, a moss covered ball of soil is wrapping with string or fishing line which acts as the pot. Various plants are inserted into a Kokedama ball of moss and soil. Occasionally these are hung from the ceiling and sometimes simply displayed on dishes.  The tradition began centuries ago when it was considered interesting to display the intricate root systems of plants such as the bonsia. Moss would gather on the roots over time enhancing the appearance.

Modern Kokedama is popular and today the soil and moss balls contain houseplants instead of bonsai or other shrubs. Many people find them perfect if the space they are wanting to decorate with plants is not very large. One such city with many apartments is New York City. Kokedama is quite popular there.

It is a process to make Kokedama but one that brings pride and satisfaction once your creation is complete. These displays can be customized in that depending on the light and temperature of the space you will be decorating, different plants can and should be used. For example for the space that never gets direct sunlight, you should use shade-tolerant plants like philodendron. Conversely if the space gets lots of sunlight and high temperatures, you should use plants like citrus.

In order to launch your Kokedama project you will need some supplies. Below is the short and relatively inexpensive list of what you will need to get started.

  • A houseplant – Some experts like pothos, philodendron, peace lily, anthurium, dracaena and ferns.
  • Potting mix –  Most mixes containing perliet and peat moss will help with aeration.
  • Fresh or dried sheet moss – This is available online or at many florists.
  • Twine –  Several options can be used.  Waxed thread, dental floss or any non-biodegradable cord are good.  These are more durable than cotton or hemp cord that breaks down over time due to the watering of the plant.

The floral designers at Flowerama Columbus would be delighted to help you with your Kokedama project. We have the supplies, the beautiful plants and most importantly the skill to teach you every step of the way!
