Bright, green fronds shooting out in all directions creating a living 'afro' makes this combination of Plant and Mossball pretty cool! As an added bonus, this fluffy plant is native to South Africa and waterwise.
The Asparagus Fern is an easy going, tolerant houseplant that enjoys moderate indirect light but is versatile and also adapts well to more shady environments.
It is a dependable house plant which keeps creating new fronds throughout the year. It is easy-care and easy on the eyes.
Hand-tied in the classic Japanese Kokedama technique our Mossballs are made with water retaining coconut peat mixture and real moss, keeping the roots of the plants moist.
Dimensions: Approx 15-20cm high, Ball Ø approx 25cm
