elephant ear plant ~~we grew these around our pool in Townsville, and only have a smallish one in a pot here. Once it goes into the ground (come the spring) I expect to look like this!!!

In pictures: the art of 'kokedama'

Kokedama by Utah-based Charlotte Catherine (charlottecatherine.com), using Alocasia 'African Mask’. Kokedama (translation "moss ball") is the practice of removing a root system from its container, surrounding it in a mud cake traditionally made partly made from clay-based akadama bonsai soil, wrapping it in moss then winding it in string.
