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.
