These string gardens are made using the Japanese bonsai technique of kokedama along with a little bit of soil science. Twig makes sure they are well established before shipping. Simply take out of the box, soak, and hang. Mandevilla vines are one of our favorites because they are quick growing perennials with beautiful velvety flowers that show from spring until fall. It's a climber so try to keep it next to a wall with a window if you want to see it become a truly magical addition to your home. This plant is not to be consumed, so keep out of reach of dogs, cats, and babies.
