Bird's Nest Fern Kokedama
To make our Bird's Nest Fern Kokedama, we bind the roots of Asplenium nidus cultivars in bright green 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 soil at base of plant feels barely moist, submerge entire mount in room temperature water until fully saturated
• Considerations: Mist your mount regularly, and reduce watering in winter.
