Marimo Seconds

Our Marimo and Mini Marimo Seconds are adorable oddballs. Perfect for kids who want to use their hands to explore these aquatic creatures or for your curious turtle who might need a nibble! 

Marimo “Moss balls“ (are actually a unique form of algae). They can live up to 200 years. 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 and our team until they are vibrant green, 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!

"The kids will be so stoked. I am an aide in special education classrooms so I cannot wait to share these little marimo with the teacher & kids, it will be a great experience & lesson. I’m excited to see it & share it. Thanks for giving us something fun to do! You are much appreciated." — Danicka H.
