Marimo are also known as moss balls, but they are actually filamentous green algae. In Japan, legend has it that marimo can bring love, luck and happiness to those who nourish it with love and patience (trailofasia). The person behind the etsy shop Pink Serissa sells beautiful miniature marimo aquariums that are thoughtfully created and styled. That’s not all though, taking care of these moss balls is a simple task. You just refill the terrarium with tap water every couple of weeks (no filtration or light required). They can even live for 200 years making it a lovely hand-me-down. You can purchase them here (1, 2, 3).
