Meet Koto: our 3-way moss habitat wonder

We are very excited to launch our new Koto moss home. Use Koto as a horizontal tabletop mossy centrepiece, mount it for some classy wall-mounted plant art, or prop it up vertically to create your own moss sphere (your Koto, your choice).

Koto really mirrors the flexibility of plants that like to grow and thrive in different environments. We love giving our customers this kind of flexibility, and yes, Koto also comes in different sizes and colours.

How to use your new moss cradle

So we created tgis versatile moss cradle to hold the substrate for your next verdant vision. Only question: what will you grow inside it?

Hang a Staghorn on your wall, sit a collection of orchids on your bookshelf, or display your favourite crawlers in the centre of your table - the possibilities are limitless. 

Some other planting ideas: ferns, succulents such as Graptopetalum superbums, phalaenopsis (moth orchids), philodendrons.... Let your imagination run wild.

Meet your moss environment: Koto in detail

With a light-weight yet sturdy design, this moss cage will come together with just a twist. The only tools you'll need will be a Phillips screwdriver to attach the legs, included as an option if you want to stand it up.

What you get:

  • Moss frame, in a selection of sizes and colours
  • Mesh cover, with a twist to lock design
  • Leg kit, which includes 4 self-threading screws for plastics.

And the name? Koto is a Finnish word for home.

Tips for using your new moss home

Make sure you allow excess water to drain after hydrating your moss, to prevent accidental water damage to your surroundings.

Hydrated moss provides a rise in humidity to its environment, something to keep in mind when selecting a display location.

What are people saying

"One of the best products you can own for orchids and ferns, especially for renters. I was determined to have a staghorn but wall mountings are a big no-no, so when this popped up it wasn't even up for debate.

The construction is second to none and the assembly is Mythos' classic twist and click system - even if you're new to their moss pole system, Koto could not be easier to set up. The honeycomb design is large enough to hold the most resilient of roots but not so large that the moss will fall out. The feet, if you choose that option, are incredibly sturdy and will easily support the weight of a semi-mature staghorn along with the moss.

10 out of 5 stars and would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a new and stunning way of mounting or displaying their favourite plants."
