They are still going to have to be soaked. You could let them dip in the shower.
Very cool!! Never heard of string gardens before. Love the oncidium orchids especially!!
Apparently they come from kokedama and if you google that you will see more moss balls with plants, some hanging, but most sitting on a dish--which is more practical from the standpoint of watering them. I did not see orchids among the plants, however.
I included orchids in the photos
Sorry--I meant in what I found when I googled kokedama.
Too cool! I'm seeing balls of bulbos hanging about in my future...
This is just amazing! Are some of those on treefern balls? I have been looking for them for some time with no luck.

Neat! (& some very nice Sarracenia in the first couple pics.) Don't see myself getting into this, however. Would require WAY too much time trying to keep them watered. Now if I lived in a really humid environment and/or had an automatic misting system set up (have to be a rather large system and would have to have drains in a tile floor if indoors) then I'd consider giving it a go.
Simply amazing, Cathy. First time seeing this art form!! Thanks for posting.
