Marimo Terrarium Kit (Metal Stand)
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 round glass orb terrarium
- 2 OZ aquarium gravel
- a little tiny white shells
- 1 black sea fan
- Curved metal stand

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.

I originally purchased this item as a gift for a friend, but I loved it so much, I kept it for myself. Everything was packaged perfectly, shipped quickly, was reasonably priced, and included easy to follow "directions". I plan on purchasing a second one for my desk at work...

I ordered 3 products from Apollo Box as a gift for my friend. This being one of them. It is so adorable and my friend loved it! All the items are unique. They were packaged nicely in styrofoam and cardboard. I also accidentally placed 2 repeat orders on accident. I emailed customer service and asked them to cancel one of the duplicate orders for me. They responded immediately and cancelled the order and my account was credited in 3 days. Love Apollo Box!

This caught my eye on a "deals alert" email I receive. I was mesmerized by it's uniqueness. I bought one for myself and one as a "thank you" for a girl who's garden tiller I borrowed. She is also delighted. The gift giving recipients list is endless with an item such as this. Unique. Affordable. Unforgettable.
