Marimo (otherwise known as "Japanese Moss Balls"), are a unique and extremely easy to care for underwater plant that are found naturally in only a small handful of lakes around the world. They are highly prized in Japan, where an annual festival is held in their honor!

They grow on the bottom of the lake, where the gentle sway of the currents help to form their unique round shape. They grow very slowly (less than 1/4 inch per year) and only require low light and occasional water changes to thrive...couldn't be easier!

For this design, we have taken a regular vanity light bulb and carefully removed all of the insides to create a re-purposed micro terrarium for your marimo! Cool enough on it's own, and only made cooler by the addition of a handmade, live-edge, wooden slab base. As pioneers of this design on etsy, we have been fine tuning our light bulbs for years now to ensure that each Marimo terrarium is at once beautiful and sustainable. All of the elements have been carefully considered in order to create a new, unique design every time the water is changed! No need to worry about disturbing anything...We also hand propagate all of our mini Marimo ourselves to ensure that you will only receive very healthy and happy moss balls!

Please note: The bases will vary, as no two pieces of wood are the same.

Sorry, we can only ship live plants within the United States.
