We are sold out through Mid May and are currently loving up our Marimo for late May/early June delivery. You can place your preorder here.
Marimo “Moss balls“ (are actually a unique form of algae). They can live up to 200 years. Their folklore tells the tale of two lovers who were forbidden to be together. Heartbroken, they both fell into the water and drown, and their hearts became the first Marimo. Because of this sweet story, Marimo are often given as gifts to signify love and commitment. (And great gifts for weddings and birthdays!) They are literally gifts that can be passed down for generations. How cool is that?!
Our fresh supplies of Marimo have been sustainably sourced and lovingly cared for by Karina until they are vibrant green and lush and ready for your home. We take extra care to nourish and love them up until they are in their healthiest state so we can send you something we know will thrive!
Each order is a set of medium balls 1.5 to 2 inches each, approx. 7-10 years old.
Each Mini Marimo is a set of small marimo balls 1-1.5 inches each, approx. 3-5 years old.
Shipped in a compostable bag.
They are sensitive to heat and light, so we will only be able to ship within the continental USA.
Be sure to unpackage them quickly and place in cold tap water out of direct sunlight. Instructions included in each order. More about care for these fun, aquatic plant friends on our FAQ’s or you can watch our YouTube video here
Be sure to grab a bottle of our Marimo Salt to keep them extra happy!
