Discover Unique and Fun Gifts!

Marimo Terrarium Kit
This charming Marimo Terrarium is great for home/office decoration or as a green gift for friends.

Marimo* (otherwise known as "Japanese Moss Balls") are unique and extremely easy to care for underwater plants found naturally in only a small handful of lakes around the world. They are highly prized in Japan, where an annual festival is held in their honor!

Package includes:

- 2 Marimo moss balls (10mm diameter)
Marimo moss balls will be shipped separately from the orb and other accessories.
Please note No moss balls option will not include marimo moss balls.
- 1 footed round terrarium has three little "legs"(4 inches tall and 3.5 inches Diameter)
- (The top opening is about 0.7 inches in diameter)
- 3oz crystal glass gravel/stone
- 1 small sea fan

How to use the Marimo Aqua Terrarium Kit:

- Just place Marimo balls in the included glass orb with some tap water.
- Soak dried sea fan with water before you place it into the orb. Marimo ball will look larger/magnified inside the terrarium.
- Change the water every week or two. They don’t need food but love it when you take them dancing by gently swirling the water.
- Don’t panic if one morning you find one floating at the top of the bowl – the oxygen from photosynthesis moves them up and down!

Tips for keeping your Marimo happy:

- Place them in the refrigerator overnight. They prefer cold water.
- If you notice your Marimo turning brown, rinse it under running water, squeezing it gently. Then, add a pinch of salt to the water in the sphere. Don’t worry - Marimo bounces back quickly!

*Did you know? Marimo grows about .5 cm per year and can live up to 200 years.

Please allow 7 business days for the product to arrive due to special needs for transporting Marimo.

My kit arrived with NO marimo balls and NO gravel. All I got was a PLASTIC fan and the aquarium. Definitely won't do business with this company again. Very deceptive!

The lovely photos that are presented here make these terrariums look A LOT nicer than they actually are. If you saw these for sale at a carnival or an arts and crafts fair you wouldn't pay more than $5 for these. So don't waste your money and spend an additional $25. They are simply not worth it.
