What's the hot new offering at this year's show? Kokedama! Here, the production lead is giving another member a lesson which I got to listen in on. I learned that the moss chosen for the exterior of the root ball is one or ones that share the same moisture preferences as the plant itself. It makes sense but I wouldn't have thought of that.

Here are some on rolling shelves, ready to catch a ride to the big show!
