Item details

Zen. Nano. Orb. Marimo Ball. Ecosphere. Terrarium
Three tiny Live Marimo Balls that are 1/2" to 1/4" tall are nestled peacefully in their very own nano ecosphere world within a handblown pyrex glass footed vessel that measures a mere 1 3/4" tall x 1 1/2" wide. Approximately 4 cm.The little Marimos float on a bed of sea glass and lots of opal iridescent glass bubbles,shells, and a sprig of sea fan (dried brown coral branch) or you can order your Nano ecosphere with the same contents but with a sprig of live green aquarium plant instead of sea fan. Photo 3 shows the scale of the orb there is a DIME in front of it. Now that's TINY! You will receive the smallest Nano Orb on the right in the second photo.The larger Micro Orb on the left is available for sale in a separate listing here: Be sure to also see Photo 5 that shows the scale of all 3 orbs I offer with a Golf Ball.
This is a MyZen Exclusive. No one else offers these orbs in this tiny size.Since each orb is hand made the shapes will vary slightly. See our other listings for the other sizes. A perfect gift for the naturalist on your list.

About Marimo Balls:
These delightful little balls of algae also called Cladophora originate in Lake Akan Japan. They are revered and adopted as "pets" in Japanese homes and offices and are believed to bring good luck. Marimo name is derived from Mari meaning "bouncy play ball" and "mo" meaning underwater plant in Japanese. They require very little care, just place in indirect light, and change the water out every two weeks. They enjoy being gently scuttled around by your finger (or chopstick) as they would by the lake currents, this keeps them green on all sides and healthy.
Eventually they propagate by dividing into smaller spheres.
