Bird's Nest Fern Kokedama

$ 38.00

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.

Bird's Nest Ferns thrive in medium to bright indirect light, and tolerate low light as well. To water, simply soak your kokedama in a sink or basin until thoroughly saturated. Includes detailed care instructions.

We make each piece by hand, choosing from our diverse collection of Asplenium nidus cultivars. The images are intended to show the variety in appearance in these ferns - feel free to include any preferences with your order. Kokedama Dish sold separately.

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

The birds nest fern is stunning and quite unique all at the same time. I will likely buy another soon from Pistils based on the quality of plants, ease of order and transition into my home from delivery.
