$25.50 USD Here are five Marimo moss ball friends in their glass block home. It's a beautiful sea-theme home with blue sand, some sea glass and sea shells! These five Marimo balls are assorted sizes, ranging from about 0.1'' to 0.5''! This modern decor can be a great addition to any home or office, without taking up too much space, as the size of the glass block is about 3" tall and also 3'' wide. Marimo ball is a live green algae, which naturally forms a cute round shape. It will grow bigger slowly over time. It gets its name from Mari meaning "ball" in Japanese and "mo" meaning algae in Japanese. Japanese people consider Marimo ball as a National Treasure and believe that it will bring good luck, so it's very popular in Japan. Also, in Iceland it is believed that if you take good care of Marimo ball, it will “make your wishes come true”. There's almost no maintenance for these Marimo friends. All they need is to be completely under water and artificial light! No special requirement... ‎- silpol
