Kokedama is roughly the size of a rockmelon.
Comes complete with a coaster, full care instructions and a gift box!
Thrives in medium and bright filtered light, but keep out of direct sun light. Will also tolerate low light areas.
Keep away from heating and cooling outlets.
Like all species of Birds Nest Ferns, these guys love moist but not soggy soil. So be sure to not let them stay dry for too long. Typically water weekly, or when the kokedama has only just dried and starts to feel light to hold.
While these guys like moist soil, be careful not over do the liquid love.
As with all ferns, they love humidity. Ideally suited to a regularly used bathroom, or if not in a humid position, mist daily with a spray bottle of room temperature water.
HOW TO WATER
Fully submerge your kokedama in a bowl, sink or bucket. You may need to hold it under for a moment! Allow to soak for 10-15 minutes until kokedama feels heavy and full.
It is important to gently squeeze out excess water from the kokedama by pressing between two hands, on the sides towards the base. This will ensure your kokedama does not stay waterlogged which will prevent conditions such as root rot, fungus gnats and mould. As the moss and twine are natural products they are biodegradable and as such, squeezing out the excess water will prevent deterioration, prolonging the life of your kokedama.
