Step 1: Make and Form Soil Balls
Mix peat moss and bonsai soil together in a 7:3 ratio. Slowly add in water and mix until a consistency develops, forming a soil ball that stays together, about the size of a grapefruit/large orange.
Step 2: Wrap Ferns with Moss
Soak the sphagnum moss in water until damp, then rinse. Then, take the fern plants and clean the soil from the roots. Use the damp sphagnum moss to wrap the roots and bind the fern with twine.
Step 3: Form Soil Ball Around Moss Ball
Break the soil ball in half. Place the moss-wrapped plant in the middle of one half of soil ball and then add the other side, shaping ball as needed. Use sheet moss to wrap the ball and bind it with twine. When the kokedama is done, spritz it with water.
