Japan Marimo Moss Ball Aquarium ~ Easy Plant ~ 4cmDIA
Marimo, a Japanese word which literally translates to “seaweed ball” are not moss at all - they’re actually a rare form of spherical algae. There’s no central stone or kernel inside the sphere - it’s solid algae, radiating from the center, growing radially outward at the snail’s pace of just 5mm per year.
**In addition to regular water maintenance, squeeze the ball very occasionally, and rotate it to make sure all sides are
exposed to light.
** The plant is snail-safe, beloved by most other creatures. Goldfish may eat it
** With proper care, Marimo can last for over a century
** Mostly found in lakes in the northern hemisphere
** Very slow, only 5 mm / year
