IMMERSE IN WATER FOR 20 MIN WEEKLYWhen you're watering the rest of your non-cactus & succulent team (unless it's week 2 for them), fill a bowl up with filtered water (I describe the importance of that in this post ) and set a timer for 20 minutes. I call this moment "hot tub party" thinking about how they all look chilling in the bowl(s).
DISPLAY IN LOCATION WITH AIR CIRCULATIONAir flow is crucial for the plant to be able to dry off in-between hot tub parties and likewise helps prevent illness.

They're really unrelated to moss at all, but instead an unusual development form of algae that's creamy to the touch (like how moss feels) which come from the lakes of Japan & Northern Europe. The growth rate of a Marimo is only up to 5mm a year, which indicates the one pictured in the fish bowl above might be 7-10 years of ages.
Do not worry, my Marimo Balls came from a nursery from a colony that's only ever been grown in captivity, in case you were concerned or wondering. They're not pricey to purchase the minute, but I won't be shocked if that changes over time. Have a terrific weekend pals!.
