Even though the light bulb no longer produces light, it can still brighten your day!:)

This repurposed light bulb has become an aquarium with a Marimo moss ball pet rolling in it. The light bulb was cleared out safely. It has a diameter of about 3 inches and is 4 inches tall. The clear base is about 1 inch tall. You can be creative with the placement of the light bulb by changing its angle! It can either make a nice decoration for your home/office, or a special gift for your friend!

It's 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 Marimo. All it needs is to be completely under water and artificial light or indirect light! There is no requirement for what kind of water you use. You can just use tap water for it! You only need to change water once every 1-2 weeks. And it will grow slowly and happily:).

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

***This listing includes:
(1) Fresh live Marimo moss ball(s) at the quantity you choose (the size is similar to the one in the pictures);
(2) A repurposed light bulb;
(3) A clear base to put the bulb on;
(4) Some natural beach sand (color varies from pictures but similar);
(5) A Marimo care instruction sheet.

If you would like more than one, feel free to change the quantity!

***In order to protect the light bulb and Marimo ball, this item comes as a kit but all you need to do is simply putting the sand, water, and Marimo ball in the light bulb vase, and then put the vase on the base. It's very easy!
