Jungle Cactus Kokedama

$ 38.00

To make our Jungle Cactus Kokedama, we bind the roots of epiphytic cacti in bright green sphagnum moss. Rhipsalis and Hatiora are genera of jungle cacti that grow on the branches of trees in the understories of tropical forests, making them tolerant of more moisture than their desert counterparts.

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.

Jungle cacti thrive in medium to 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 with the best of our assorted Rhipsalis and Hatiora species. The images are intended to show the variety in appearance in these special plants - feel free to reach out with preferences. Kokedama Dish sold separately.

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

This was a gift for my daughter in law who went out of her way during the pandemic to travel to a nursery to get a few plants for me. We both love all sorts of plants so I thought that this unusual one would show my appreciation

My Rhipsalis

I could not be happier with my new Rhipsalis Kokedama. It was larger than I had anticipated to my delight. My order arrived in excellent packaging and condition. Highly recommend Pistils Nursery and even to my sister who lives in Oregon. :)
