Asparagus Fern Kokedama
To make our Asparagus Fern Kokedama, we bind the roots of these lacy-leafed houseplants in bright green sphagnum moss. Though not true ferns, these members of the Asparagus genus get their nickname from the plumes of delicate frond-like foliage that characterize these textural plants.
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 mount in room temperature water until fully saturated
• Considerations: Asparagus ferns love humidity. Mist your kokedama regularly.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We'll make your Asparagus Kokedama to order, choosing from our diverse collection of Asparagus species (such as A. retrofractus, A. plumosus and A. densiflorus). 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

Great review on all counts. And, this is a different type of asparagus fern than what I thought I was ordering. Might like to order another if I could sort out the kind I want. Thanks!
Pistils Nursery’s customer service added to our already delighted experience. They worked to deliver specific ferns I requested and the plants arrived in great condition. The unique look is great as well!
I’m pretty new to the world of plants, and completely new to kokedama. The fern itself is full and green. It couldn’t look better. The moss ball is beautifully wrapped and firm. Love, love, love. Every single one of the plants or plant accessories I’ve purchased from Pistil’s has exceeded my expectations.
