A marimo ball is a rare growth form of algae, which grows into large green balls with a soft, velvety appearance.they are native to japan, where they naturally grow at Lake Akan but are found in Iceland ,Estonia and scotland. they can grow patches on a lake floor at depths from 2 to 2.5 m. The round shape of the marimo is maintained by wave action that turns it.In Japan the
marimo has been a protected species since 1920, said to be a national treasure.

how to grow marimo balls

your marimo friends will grow in tap water at room temperature as long as the water is changed every one or two weeks.The growth rate of Marimo is about 5 mm per year.they grow particularly large, up to 20–30 cm (8–12 inches). all they need is normal household lighting for them to make food, otherwise, indirect sunlight is fine. you should turn them over once in a while for them to keep their round shape. they also do well in waterfalls, i usually put all five of mine in my waterfall every other night which will also keep them nice and round.marimo's are actually VERY easy to take care of, probably one of the easiest plants that live in water.
lighting

they need very little light, especially if they are in a place that has some sunlight. i just put a desk lamp, facing the tank on for about an hour every day and that works well. one very interesting way too tell if they are getting enough light is if they are floating,if they are then they are getting plenty of light and if they are not then you should give them some light.

this is a large size marimo ball, which ranges from 1/2 in to 1 in.
they make a great addition to any aquarium sense they clean and filter the water!

all my marimo balls are hand chosen for 100% satisfaction.
all of my marimo's are green and healthy.
