The Marimo 'Moss' Ball is a fuzzy aquatic ball of filamentous green algae. Marimo Moss Balls are native to Lake Akan in Japan, where they are designated as a national treasure and believed to bring good luck. They are also found in parts of Europe and Iceland. These little moss balls are perfect for beginners as they can survive under any conditions, and only need to be rolled over every once in a while to prevent it from turning brown on the bottom.


NOTE: Each ball is about an inch in diameter
