Step by Step Instructions

1 Soak coir and moss
2 Choose a plant
3 Remove plant from pot
4 Pack coir around roots
5 Wrap moss around roots
6 Wrap string around
7 Make the hanger
8 Water plant
  • Step 1. Soak coir and moss

    Start by soaking your coir peat and sphagnum moss in separate buckets of water.

  • Step 2. Choose a plant

    Select a plant to hang. Any potted plant will do but we’ve chosen a succulent.

  • Step 3. Remove plant from pot

    Carefully take the plant out of the pot and brush off the excess dirt.

  • Step 4. Pack coir around roots

    Take the coir from your bucket and tightly pack it around the roots of the plant, moulding it into a ball shape.

  • Step 5. Wrap moss around roots

    Take some sphagnum moss from your bucket and flatten it out on your bench. Place the plant with coir peat in the middle and wrap the moss tightly around it.

  • Step 6. Wrap string around

    Take your string and wrap it around the moss a few times. Tie it off and repeat the process a couple of times until the moss is held firmly in place.

  • Step 7. Make the hanger

    Tie a piece of string to either side of the ball to make a hanger for the plant. Then simply hang that over a hook and you’re done.

  • Step 8. Water plant

    To keep your hanging plant watered, just hold it by the hanger and dip it into a bucket of water every so often.
