Marimo Terrarium Kit
The 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)
- 1 piece 3.5" footed round terrarium has three little "legs"(4 inches tall and 3.5 inches wide at the base)
- (The top opening is about 0.7 inches in diameter)
- 3 oz sky blue glass gravel/3 oz white stones
- 1 resin yellow duck/1 resin girl and 1 windmill
- Mini seashells
- 1 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.

Easily one of my cutest and most unique decorations. I love looking at the moss and the bright ducky is a perfect contrast!

I ordered one for me and loved it so much I order another for my granddaughter. Mine began getting some algae after a month or so so I emptied the water, used a Q-tip to wipe the sides and refilled and left in frig overnight. It's a lot of fun.

We enjoy looking at this little aquarium at home. It doesn't require a lot of work to care for the marimo balls.
