Hi! We're marimos!

Miss Emma saved us from being eaten by the evil Sir Oreck of Hoover, the 2nd, who ate most of our brothers and sisters.

She saved SO many of us and has done an awesome job of taking care of us, but there are SO many of us that we need new homes! We promise we won't eat much or pee in the bed. You can even wear us around your neck!

In Japan, we're considered good luck. Won't you take us home?

Care and handling:
As these are live plants, they are subject to be different than pictured above.
Marimo is an algae.
They just need some artificial lighting and a filtered water change every 1-2 weeks.
They don't survive freezing very well, but can handle most moderate temperatures above freezing and below boiling.
The spherical shape is achieved by lake waves in the wild. If they begin to flatten, you might rock them gently to sleep.

I raised them all myself in a clean and healthy planted aquarium environment. My pleco really did start eating the main parent plant, so they've been separated to a plant-only home and cleaned.

Please add a comment at checkout of how long you would like your necklace to be and whether you would like black cord or black thin ribbon.

Vials are 1.5" tall and hangs from the necklace from a wire wrapped around the neck of the vial (so you won't lose the cork!).

I'm only shipping these in the US at the moment. If you would like them shipped outside the US, send me a message and I'll see what I can do.

Frequently asked questions about Em2aStudios

I am located out of my home studio in Mesa, Arizona. I can also occasionally be found at various sci-fi and comic conventions all around North America, but I'm starting to cut down on how many I do in a year.

I can also sometimes be found travelling with Modelers or Mice. Marti is a good friend who knows how to hunt me down and make me make stuff.

EIN, Mesa & Arizona state tax licenses available upon request.
I love you guys!

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me (sometimes it takes more than 24 hours to respond). You will *always* get a proof before I mail it out so we both know you're getting what you want.
