Marimo | Moss Ball | Rare Plant Care Guide

Avoid direct sunlight and place your Moss Balls in a spot with low to medium light levels - this prevents them turning brown and the water heating up. Top up or change the water fully using rain water. If algae starts to grow on the side of the tank, refresh the water after cleaning with a brush. Keep your Marimo Moss Balls together in their jars for happy plants.
