Announcement   The holiday season is already upon us, and SucculentDESIGNS is celebrating 10 years on Etsy--time has sure flown! Thanks to Etsy for providing this venue and opportunity to share my succulent love, and to all of you for just checking out my stuff...

New kokedama are being made and listed daily, and now is the time to reserve for Christmas delivery--buy now and I can postpone delivery until right before Christmas.

Greetings, and thank you for looking in my shop! I've been away for a nice long vacation and the creative juices are running amok! During my retreat I decided to experiment with some new ideas before reopening, and I hope you all love my new items.

I recently discovered the art of kokedama, which means 'moss ball' in Japanese; the concept is a plant (or plants) inserted into a ball of soil, wrapped in sphagnum moss, and then secured in a clean-line twine wrap--the art is really in the twine-wrapping technique, which in turn, spotlights the star of the kokedama--the plants! I've been studying and practicing this skill with amazing results and can't wait to share this with all of you! Succulents are the special love of my gardening life Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you so much:-)

Greetings, and thank you for looking in my shop! I've been away for a nice long vacation and the creative juices are running amok! During my retreat (which encompassed hubs long-awaited retirement and a new cozy home in the grasslands), I decided to experiment with some new ideas before reopening.

I recently discovered the art of kokedama, which means 'moss ball' in Japanese; the concept is a plant (or plants) inserted into a ball of soil, wrapped in sphagnum moss, and then secured in a clean-line twine wrap--the art is really in the twine-wrapping technique, which in turn, spotlights the star of the kokedama--the plants! I've been studying and practicing this skill with amazing results and can't wait to share this with all of you!

These gorgeous, self-contained mini gardens can be placed on a flat surface or suspended in a hanger if you'd like a 'string garden'! They're the perfect gift to add life to a dorm room, tiny house, or Manhattan apartment where every square inch is valuable real estate. They ship very well, and are unique and environmentally friendly (kokedama instead of cut flowers, please)! Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you so much:-)

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:

  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)

Returns and exchange details
Every kokedama is established and thriving when shipped, and carefully wrapped to ensure that it arrives intact; from time to time, accidents do occur. If your package and contents are damaged when you receive it, please take a photo to document within 48 hours (this is necessary so I can submit a claim to USPS) and I'll send you a similar replacement within two weeks.

Once a package is out of my hands and in the mail stream, I can't be held responsible for lost, stolen, or misdelivered packages; however, since your package is insured, you may file a claim with USPS to recoup your loss.
Payment
PayPay, all major credit cards accepted by Etsy. Arizona residents are subject to state tax which will be calculated at checkout. You may cancel an order as long as it has not been shipped at the time of your cancellation request.
Shipping
Your purchase will be shipped via USPS and online tracking information will be furnished when your koke is on its way. My shipping days are generally Monday or Tuesday so that you'll receive them prior to the weekend. Open the package on receipt; plants should be removed right away, and just follow easy enclosed instructions.

Kokedama are shipped very dry (and postage is calculated accordingly, as a wet koke can be triple the weight or more of a dry one). Shipping can be anywhere from 1-5 business days, depending on the day of the week you order, and depending on how wet the koke is at that time.

Due to the perishable nature of the product and agricultural/customs regulations, kokedama cannot be shipped outside of the 48 contiguous states.
Additional policies and FAQs
Kokedama can last for months or even years(!) if properly maintained and enclosed instructions followed.

Regarding succulents, they do change color depending on sun exposure or lack of, hot or cold temperatures, and stress. They also have varying bloom and propagation cycles which will affect their appearance. Most listings will feature a photo of the actual plant you will receive, at the time the listing was posted, and some listings will have stock photos--the listing description will tell you. I'm always happy to provide additional photos of any kokedama at your request.

If you'd like to send your purchase as a gift, just place a message in the 'notes to seller' section of the shopping cart to flag it so I don't miss it, as well as your brief personal message to the recipient if you'd like a gift card included. Also include the full name and correct mailing address of the recipient.


Sorry, I do not wholesale or consign.
