Product Description

I am new to water gardening; is Marimo a good choice?

With few requirements, this round, bright green aquatic plant can live for decades and reach diameters of up to 12" (30.5cm). In order to thrive, marimo need clean, room temperature water, indirect lighting and a gentle roll from time to time. No water treatments, heat lamps, fertilizers are required.

My terrarium has many species of plants; are the marimo moss balls safe to add?
All natural and organically grown, the Floro marimo algae plants are safe to add to any freshwater habitat. Adding the exquisite, round marimo moss balls to your terrarium brings a dynamic uniqueness hard to find in other traditionally shaped plants.

Can I place the algae balls in tanks with my aquatic pets?
Absolutely. When placed in a fish or shrimp tank, the marimo balls suck up nitrates, fish excreta and other debris providing cleaner, clearer water. Every few weeks you should take the marimo out and give them a gentle squeeze to rid them of the excess waste they have accumulated.

What else can the marimo moss be used for?
Naturally vibrant green in color, the marimo moss balls are a beautiful addition to other vessels besides a terrarium or tank. Put them in a clear dish on your kitchen counter for a calming effect. Add the marimo, some sparkly crystals or glass pebbles to a decorative vase for a unique table centerpiece.
