Marimo Moss Balls are such a great way to create an indoor water garden at home!

They are a rare species of algae in which the algae grow into green balls with a fluffy and velvety appearance.


- Change their water once a week or every other week.

- Do not place them in direct sunlight. A low to medium indirect sunlight spot will be ideal.

- No need to use fertilisers since they create their own food through photosynthesis.


The Extra Small Marimo Moss Balls measure 0.5 - 2 cm.

The Small Marimo Moss Balls measure 2 - 4 cm.

The Medium Marimo Moss Ball measure 4 - 5 cm.

The Large Marimo Moss Ball measure 5 - 7 cm.


The Marimo Moss Balls will be delivered in a self seal bio-degradable and compostable bag. These bags are made from PLA derived from corn and potato starch. They break down to CO2, H2O and compost.

When you receive your Marimo Moss Balls, remove them from the eco-bag, add filtered or tap water to a recipient or vase and introduce the Marimo balls inside.
