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.


• Light: Bright, indirect light
• Water: When soil at base of plant feels barely moist, submerge entire moss ball in room temperature water until fully saturated
• Considerations: These ferns love humidity, and don't like to fully dry out. Mist your kokedama regularly


We'll make your Footed Fern Kokedama to order, choosing from our diverse collection of Footed Ferns, such as Davalia, Phlebodium and Microsorum species. No two pieces are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality - expect this natural variation from the photos, and feel free to include any preferences with your order. Dish sold separately.

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

Our Plant Craft pieces include detailed care instructions. We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

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.
