Bird's Nest Fern Kokedama
To make our Bird's Nest Fern Kokedama, we bind the roots of Asplenium nidus cultivars in sphagnum moss. These lush, tropical ferns form nest-like rosettes, with leaves emerging in a circular pattern from the center of the plant. Since they grow epiphytically on tree branches in their native habitats, it's no wonder they've been given the common name, Bird's Nest Fern.
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: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: When moss ball begins to feel dry and lightweight, run under room temperature water until fully saturated.
• Considerations: Mist your mount regularly, and reduce watering in winter.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We'll make your Kokedama to order. No two pieces are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality - expect this natural variation from the photos. Moss ball measures approximately 5" - 6" in diameter.
Feel free to include any preferences with your order, and we'll do our best to accommodate.
