Here is a little square jar with a Marimo moss ball in it and a touch of earthy color! The moss ball can be your easy-to-take-care-of pet! It's fresh and green all year round and can live for a really long time! The aquarium looks earthy and natural and it can be a great home table or office desk decoration! It's also a unique gift idea!:)

Marimo ball is a live green algae, which naturally forms a cute round shape. It will grow bigger slowly over time. It gets its name from Mari meaning "ball" in Japanese and "mo" meaning algae in Japanese. Japanese people consider Marimo ball as a National Treasure and believe that it will bring good luck, so it's very popular in Japan. Also, in Iceland it is believed that if you take good care of Marimo ball, it will “make your wishes come true”.

One very interesting fact about Marimo is that it sinks or floats freely due to its interaction with water and air. So if you see it float sometimes, that means it's just having fun with the nature!

There's almost no maintenance for this Marimo guy. All it needs is to be completely under water and artificial light (or indirect light)! No special requirement for the water so tap water works totally fine for it! You only need to change water once every 1-2 weeks. And it will grow slowly and happily:) It's that easy! Just make sure not to drop your Marimo ball down to the sink when you change water...

It's fun to observe this interesting and mysterious Marimo ball, and to shake the jar gently to spin the Marimo ball around. This can help it grow more evenly and round! You can also touch or poke it gently to say hi:)

Our Marimo balls are all very green, fresh and round! High quality guaranteed!

This listing includes:
(1) One live Marimo moss ball (the size can be a little smaller or bigger than the one in the pictures but similar);
(2) A glass jar with cork: it has a height of 2'' ( about 2.3'' with cork), a length of 1.5'' and a width of 1.5''.
(3) Some little pebbles with earthy colors (mix of brown, yellow and gold);
(4) A Marimo care instruction sheet.

In order to protect the glass and the Marimo ball, this item comes as a kit but all you need to do is simply putting water, pebbles, and the Marimo ball in the jar. It's very easy!

Happy shopping!:)
