♥What is a Marimo?♥
Marimo is a fluffy living green ball that symbolizes love and everlasting relationship. They can grow so slowly for a very long period (approx 5 mm per year!). The largest Marimo found in the wild is the size of a softball, estimated to be about 200 years old! They are the national treasure of Japan, and they believe that Marimos will bring you good luck if you take care and bond with them.

♥How to care for Marimo?♥
Marimos make such cheerful "housepets" and "officepets" because they are easy to care and require very little space to keep them happy. All they need is to live in filtered water (bottled, filtered tap water) and somewhere with indirect sunlight. Since they naturally live in the bottom of the lakes such as Lake Akan, Japan, they are used to thriving in lower light conditions. Just remember to give them a little tuck and roll sometimes, and change the water every couple of weeks. That's all they need and in exchange they will bring you joy!

♥Who would you give a Marimo to?♥
Marimo makes a great gift for your friends, family, loved ones and let's not forget yourself! It makes a very unique, entertaining gift to the recipient and all the people around them. It's a great conversation starter, it is also relaxing when you pet it! It's common for couples or friends to each keep a Marimo as it signifies their love/friendship with each other. Your pet Betta, the fish, makes a good companion with your Marimos too! Mine likes to snuggle up between his fluffy balls. For the fresh water aquarium owners -- Marimo can help reduce the growth of green algae that often appears in the walls of tanks.

♥Planning on Gifting?♥
Marimos can stay out of water and in the dark for up to 3 weeks safely as long as it is kept in a cool place, indoor without indirect sunlight. Although I ship all my items with care, but if you can, placing your orders in advance would allow enough time for buffer. OR you can also leave me a note in the checkout indicating when you would like your package shipped. If not noted, regular shipments take within 2-4 business days to process. You will get your tracking info once they are shipped.

If you would like a note to go along with your gift, just let me know your message in the "note" section of checkout. :)

♥Feedbacks from my lovely customers♥

Mary Lena (13mlena) says:
"Everything is perfect! Thank you very much! I love my little Marimo, I'll be sure to recommend you to my friends :)"

Madrigallia says:
"My marimo shipped incredibly fast, and was packaged amazingly! There's no way anything could happen to it in transit :) Very happy with my healthy marimo."

Kate Doonan (margreymatter) says:
"I am extremely pleased with this purchase. At first I was worried because the shipping was taking a little bit long and I did not want the marimo to arrive dead. The packaging was excellent though, keeping the marimo nice and moist and preventing it from getting crushed. The package was marked fragile, so maybe that accounts for the slower shipping time. Well worth it! It is very healthy and I would definitely recommend this seller if you would like a marimo."

Masterreana says:
"Just got this little one in the mail today. It's so cute I could almost die of it, and very easy to manage so far. I love the casual playfulness of walking past it's little bowl and then shuffling back to stir it around a bit and give it a pet. So far, it's managed to charm my nieces, both of my parents, my sister, and slowly it is cracking the hardened exterior of my brother-in-law. :D Shipping was fast, communicating w/ Wendi is super smooth, and the resulting companion is more than perfect."

Kelly Tor (Dashieldog) says:
"Wendi has the coolest products!! My kids and I love our Marimo Aquarium. A + seller. I would not hesitate to make another purchase."

Keri Brown (kerisluckycharms) says:
"My sister loved this! I bought it as a birthday gift for her. She was so excited! It is very unique!!!! Everything arrived in perfect condition. I gave my browsed around on youtube for links on Marimo and found your shop! I am pleased over all with my experience and would recommend you to friends! Thank you so much for the speedy delivery too! Keri"

Marissa Dembkoski (metromarissa) says:
"I bought this for my mother who has a pretty stressful job. At first she thought it was the weirdest thing for me to buy her but she loves playing around with it and is a huge conversation piece with her coworkers! She named it Memo, after Nemo but put a M in instead since it's a Marimo!"

Susan (jeffandsuz) says:
"Wendi is incredible to communicate with and I just love, love, love my Marimos! Thank you for everything Wendi! I have no doubt that I will be visiting your store again very soon."

Isabela Rougeux (isabelarougeux) says:
"The Marimo was exactly how I pictured it. It came speedy and with extra care to protect it from the cold weather. So great."

Rew (thevagabondtrust) says:
"coolest buy I've ever had on etsy...meticulously packed, great seller. Would come back any day! :)"

motherlandjewels says:
"I'm so happy I discovered Wendi's shop because Marimo is a great addition to my life! For a seemingly-inanimate object it really does brighten my day! Upkeep is minimal (great for me because I'm not so good with plants...) and I can't wait to grow my collection. I highly recommend Wendi's shop - great products and she's wonderful at answering questions or giving advice :)"
