Footed Fern Kokedama
To make our Footed Fern Kokedama, we bind the roots of rhizomatous ferns in bright green sphagnum moss. Though they come from several different genera, these ferns share a unique growing structure, with fronds emerging from rhizomes, a special type of horizontal stem that grows at the soil level, looking almost like the plant's "feet."
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: These ferns love humidity, and don't like to fully dry out. Mist your kokedama regularly

The kokedama arrived in great shape. Beautiful plant and well made kokedama. I requested a specific fern species and they sent just what I wanted! I've had nothing but good experiences with Pistils so far.
Wow! Arrived in beautiful condition! Very excited to place on my dining room table!
