Marimo Moss Balls (Aegagropila Linnaei) are naturally occurring algae growths that slowly form into a ball in the wild at a rate of about 5mm per year. Regarded as a good luck charm, they have been known to live over 200+ years and are often handed down as an heirloom through the generations.
When you order a Marimo, you will receive one healthy plant, a care card, and a lidded glass container (choice of two sizes) with pebbles and pieces of binchotan charcoal so you can create the perfect habitat.
How to Care for Your New Marimo Moss Ball
Marimo balls require very little maintenance to survive, but there are measures you can take to ensure they thrive. We suggest the following:
Shipping Note: This product requires some special pre-shipping preparation, so please allow 3-5 additional days for your shipment to arrive. Your marimo will arrive damp, in a resealable poly bag. Before adding it to the display jar, carefully rinse it under water and gently squeeze it clean. A slight fragrance after shipment is normal and will subside with rinsing and regular cleaning.

These decorative air plants were handmade by our team and can typically be found poking out from nooks and crannies in our shop. When you order an air plant, you will receive one healthy plant, a care card, and a wooden display base.
How to Care for Your New Air Plant
Caring for an air plant is easy! For smaller plants, all they require is a light misting or shower 2-3 times per week. Larger plants should be dunked in water for 15-20 minutes once per week. Always be sure to drain excess water out of the crevices.
These plants will thrive in dry or humid climates as long as they receive adequate moisture. Direct sunlight is not recommended but may result in attractive foliage coloration. When using air plants for terrariums or art projects, please note that they should not be planted in potting soil or dirt (hence the name Air Plants). Air Plants can be placed on sand, sea glass, rocks, pebbles, bark chip, wood, or metal stands.
Many air plants spike a bloom that will flower. They also produce pups that create a whole other plant.
