Austral Gem Fern Kokedama
A 90s spin-off from the bonsai art form, 'kokedama' translates from the Japanese to 'moss ball'. Traditionally wrapped in living moss, at Greenovia Crafts we use a variety of lower maintenance natural fibers to contain plant roots in our own mixes of organic soil. Each plant ball is finished off with biodegradable twine to form a potless houseplant design.
Kokedama look great displayed au naturel on waterproof surfaces or sat in a dish, or may be hung vertically in hangers. Display one solo or in an arranged 'string garden' for an unexpected bit of living art in your home.
Asplenium x ‘Austral Gem’™, commonly known as the austral gem fern, is a relatively new fern that is more drought tolerant than other ferns. The fronds are waxy, thick and shiny - making a statement indoors.
The austral gem does well in shade to medium, indirect light and likes to be watered as soon as the soil begins to dry out. Further care guidance is available here.
This hanging (optional) design features organic coco fiber, natural twine and wooden bead. Hanger included. Hangs about 2' 8" long; ball diameter is about 5".
Please note that each design is living and handmade. As such, variations in plant color, size, shape, etc. should be expected.
