Marimo moss balls are actually not made out of moss at all, but a freshwater green algae. They naturally occur at the bottom of certain lakes of the world where the currents are just right to form this algae into a ball shape. 

Marimo moss balls are a deep green color and are very easy to care for, though extremely slow-growing. They look great in any aquarium and will thrive under low light. Therefore, they are an excellent choice for beginners looking for an easy yet eye-catching "plant" to get into keeping planted tanks.

Love these Marimo moss balls

I purchased two of these moss balls 4 months ago, and they're still as beautiful as the day they arrived. I'd love to buy more and hope they're back in stock soon.
