Here's a cute little Marimo moss ball aquarium garden with colorful forest pebbles. The Marimo 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 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! 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 forest colors;
(4) A Marimo care instruction sheet.

This would also look great with more than one Marimo ball in the water:) They can get along well and make good friends! If you want more than one, just let us know. We will make a custom listing for you!! The extra Marimo balls would be $2 for each.

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 the pebbles, water and the Marimo ball in the jar. It's very easy!

Happy shopping!:)
