Marimo Moss Ball - 3 inch

Marimo Moss Ball - 3 inch

Marimo Moss Balls are the new fad! Remember the pet rock? Meet the new and improved "pet"!  Give him or her a name and be on your way. All you have to do is change the water every two weeks to keep them  growing, and keep them in a cool darker area. Avoid direct sunlight! 


Marimo Moss Balls grow very slowly (only about 5 millimeters per year), so it will take them an extremely long time to gain a significant amount in size. They actually are not moss at all, they are a rare form of algae that grows naturally in a spherical shape. 


Why do you need a moss ball? 

1. They are a fun spin on houseplants. They don't require anything besides being submerged in water and avoiding direct sunlight. 

2. They make uniquely great gifts! In Japanese culture, giving a moss ball as a gift is considered to be very pretisgous. Why? Because there is an infamous love story attached to the moss ball dating from way back when and because moss balls have an entirely long life span. They can live for hundred of years.

3. They are the best first "pet". Teach responsibility in the young ones with a little moss ball! 


Moss balls symbolize love, luck and prosperity and have been given as symbolic gifts to partners who want to spend the rest of their life together.
