The glass box is a very unique and modern home for the little Marimo buddy. This aquarium can bring nature and fun to you or your friends:)

The little green ball is called a Marimo moss ball, which is a live green algae. It naturally forms a cute round shape over time. 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 vase gently to spin the Marimo ball around. This can help it grow more evenly and round!

This listing includes:
(1) One glass vase with a width of 2.25'', a height of 4.75'', and the little hole on the top is about 0.5'' in diameter;
(2) A fresh green Marimo moss ball (the size varies but similar);
(3) Some little pebbles;
(4) A Marimo care instruction sheet.

This would also look great with several Marimo friends! If you want more than one moss ball, just let us know. We will make a custom listing for you!! The extra ones would be $2 for each.

In order to protect the glass and the Marimo ball, it comes as a kit, but it's easy and fun to assemble! All you would need to do is to put water in the glass, and then the pebbles and Marimo!

If you have custom requests, please send us a message! Thank you:)
