Aegagropila linnaei (Marimo Ball)

Marimo is actually not moss at all, but rather a rare form of algae that grows in spherical shapes. Each ball is approx. 2" in diameter. Easy to care for. They will rest on the bottom of your aquarium. A simple way to add some plants to your freshwater aquarium to oxygenate the water and promote biological filtration. Great for Betta bowls.

Loose cuttings are harvested from our aquariums at Aqua Lab. While we try our best to remove snails, we can't guarantee that these plants will be pest or disease-free. It's common for tiny snails or microscopic snail eggs to hitchhike on plants that come from an established aquarium. Please keep in mind that plant and portion sizes can vary as our plants grow and propagate.

We only ship livestock Monday to Wednesday to avoid weekend delays. Please keep in mind the availability of plants can change quickly as they come in and out of our possession or deteriorate in health, so there could be a delay updating the published availability. We will be in touch if the species you order is not available and you will always have the option to wait or take a substitute or refund. We appreciate your patience as we work to deliver healthy plants to you.
