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.

Fabulous Little Green Balls!

I am highly impressed with the quality and the shape of the Moss Ball. I love it so much I will soon be ordering more. It fluffed out after a day or so and the fish enjoy moving it around the tank. I bought two other plants (very healthy - no melting) from this site as well, but the ball is "interactive" and I enjoy watching the pleco with it!

This moss ball arrived super quick and in really good shape! It was a little squished from shipping but it sprung right back up. Good size as well.
