Marimo Moss Balls (Aegagropila linnaei) are deep green velvety spheres that live submerged in water. While they resemble moss or seaweed, they are actually an amazing form of algae.
Your marimo moss ball is easy to take care of. Keep it submerged in filtered water, or in tap water that has been allowed to sit out uncovered for at least 24 hours. Place its container in low or indirect light and avoid windowsills or other spots where direct light occurs. Keep it in a cooler place away from radiators or other sources of heat.
Your Marimo Moss Ball Kit contains a glass apothecary jar with metal lid, decorative pebbles and your choice of one, two, three, four or five marimo moss balls.
Each and every one of our Marimo Moss Balls always go through a rigorous cleaning process before arriving at our store. This process removes any "hitchhikers" including Zebra Mussels, which have been of concern recently on other Marimo Moss Balls.
