Footed Fern Kokedama

$ 38.00

To make our Footed Fern Kokedama, we bind the roots of rhizomatous ferns in bright green sphagnum moss. Though they come from several different genera, these ferns share a unique growing structure, with fronds emerging from rhizomes, a special type of horizontal stem that grows at the soil level, looking almost like the plant's "feet." 

Simply translated, kokedama means "moss ball," and these pieces are our take on the traditional Japanese bonsai practice of the same name. Sometimes called string gardens, each piece can sit in a shallow dish or hang with the attached fishing line loop, making them lovely additions to any window or tabletop.

Footed Ferns thrive in bright indirect light. To water, simply soak your kokedama in a sink or basin until thoroughly saturated. Includes detailed care instructions.

We make each piece by hand, choosing from our diverse collection of Footed Ferns, such as Davalia, Phlebodium and Microsorum species. The images are intended to show the variety in appearance in these houseplants - feel free to include any preferences with your order. Kokedama Dish sold separately.

Small: 4" - 5" moss ball diameter
Large: 6" - 7" moss ball diameter

Love my kokedama!

My plant arrived in excellent condition and is living happily a week later. The care instructions on the website have also been very helpful.
