Starfish Marimo

Starfish 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

This design features a large marimo of about 1.5" resting atop pastel-colored pebbles with a ceramic starfish in the background. The glass bowl is 4.5".

Marimo require very little light and weekly tap water changes. Further care guidance is here.
