Hanging Jar Marimo
Marimo moss balls make perfect pet plants. Wonderfully green, round and velvety, wild marimo are found in only a handful of freshwater lakes in the Northern Hemisphere. Not really a moss, Aegagropila linnaei is a type of algae that grows only up to 5 mm a year, yet may live for 100+ years. In Japanese folklore the marimo is symbolically associated with true love.
This design features three small marimo (about 0.5" each) resting atop pastel-colored pebbles around a ceramic starfish figurine. The jar is 3" L x 3" W x 5" H.
Marimo require very little light and weekly tap water changes. Further care guidance is here.
