Jungle Cactus Kokedama

$ 38.00
Size

To make our Jungle Cactus Kokedama, we bind the roots of epiphytic cacti in bright green sphagnum moss. Rhipsalis and Hatiora are genera of jungle cacti that grow on the branches of trees in the understories of tropical forests, making them tolerant of more moisture than their desert counterparts.

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.

PLANT CARE

• Light: Tolerates low light, but thrives in medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: When soil at base of plant is dry, submerge entire moss ball in room temperature water until fully saturated
• Considerations: Jungle cacti will show you when they're thirsty - water when the foliage begins to pucker

WHAT TO EXPECT

We'll make your Jungle Cactus Kokedama to order, choosing from our diverse collection of Rhipsalis and Hatiora species. 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

Our Plant Craft pieces include detailed care instructions. We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

Jungle cactus

It was a gift for my sister. She was very excited to receive it. Because it was so different from anything she already has. Being a master gardener it’s hard to impress her. But I did . Your plants are always packed well and arrive in great condition.

fantastic!

This was a gift for my daughter in law who went out of her way during the pandemic to travel to a nursery to get a few plants for me. We both love all sorts of plants so I thought that this unusual one would show my appreciation
