The green leaves of the Kokina consist of the branches of the leaf-tip thorny plant called Ruscus, the red fruits called Silcan are tied on these branches and the Kokina bundle is formed.
According to a belief, it is believed that Kokina will bring abundance, luck and peace, and this belief makes Kokina a very sweet Christmas gift. It is believed that if you keep your bundle of Kokina intact until next Christmas, the house will be bought.

In order for your Kokina bunch to be long-lasting, we recommend that the place where it is kept should be in a cool place away from direct sunlight. It is recommended to irrigate for 1 hour weekly in a vase filled with less water. Since it is a bunch of cut branches, it lasts for 3-4 months on average. This period may increase or decrease according to the maintenance condition, the environment in which it is standing.
