For more compact and dense foliage, Phlebodium is best in medium to bright filtered light. Will also do well in some lower light areas, but fronds may grow a little 'leggy' as they reach for the light.
Keep out of direct sun, and heating outlets. Cooler environments are also fine for Phlebodium.
Because Phlebodiums naturally occur in tropical areas, they need a humid environment and constantly moist soil, but will suffer if water is allowed to stand in the pot for too long. SO be sure to not soak your kokedama for too long, and ensure excess water is gently squeezed out of your kokedama as per care instructions provided.
Typically water weekly year round.
All ferns love humid air, and Phlebodium is no different. To ensure adequate humidity, place your phlebodium in a used bathroom, or give a mist with a spray bottle daily.
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.
Alternatively, you can gently water from the top as you would a normal pot plant. Simply part any lower foliage to expose some soil and gently water. This method will also ensure the moss and twine wrap is prolonged.
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.
