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 bought this as a Christmas gift for my granddaughter. It was listed as one of the items on her wish list. When she opened it, the look she had was priceless as I hadn't undone the protective wrap around the glass. When she learned what it was, the smiles said it all. The aquarium was put together and is situated in her room. She loves it!

I bought this for a Christmas present for a very unique person. I was fortunate to be present when he opened it, and put it together. It was so beautiful I will be purchasing one for myself just as soon as I move into my New home.

This is a unique item which is usually the center of conversation. It's very easy to care for. I recommend this if you're looking for a nice gift or as a keep-it-for-myself gift.
