Marimo Moss isn’t really a moss, it is a phenomenon of algae where it grows in a ball shape from the inside out! This naturally grows in fresh water lakes in Scotland, Estonia, Iceland, Japan and Australia.
There is a history of wonder and lore with Marimo Moss balls. The legend goes that two lovers who were forbidden together fell into a lake and their hearts turned into Marimo Moss! So now Marimo is said to bring your heart’s desire to both the giver and recipient of one.
These are beautiful, elegant decorations to have. More than this, you can even propagate cuttings in the water – as can be seen in our image with our Monstera cutting that happily grew very strong roots in a vase with some marimo moss.
