Staghorn Fern Kokedama

$ 48.00

To make our Staghorn Fern Kokedama, we bind the roots of these fascinating epiphytic houseplants in bright green sphagnum moss. Members of the Platycerium genus, Staghorn Ferns get their nickname from the antler-like fronds that jut out dramatically from the base of the plant, growing every longer and more split as the plant matures.

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: Staghorn ferns love humidity. Mist your kokedama regularly.


We'll make your Staghorn Fern Kokedama to order, choosing from our diverse collection of Staghorn Ferns, such as Platycerium bifurcatum, Platycerium 'Netherlands' and Platycerium veitchii.  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. 

Moss ball diameter measures about 5".

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