In Japanese folklore, the Marimo moss ball is a symbol of luck and love. The legend tells of a tribal chief's daughter who ran away with her lover, but their love was forbidden. They then fell into the water, where their spirits became Marimo balls. Many people choose to give a Marimo to the person they hope to spend the rest of their lives with. What better way to surprise your lover than with this ready made Marimo moss ball kit.
The Marimo ball also signifies a long lasting relationship, as they will practically last forever. The moss balls can grow for up to 100 years or more with very little maintenance. All you need to do is change the water about once every two weeks and watch it grow about 5 mm (0.19") per year. If you notice any brown spots, take the Marimo ball out of direct sunlight. They are used to cool and darker habitats at the bottom of a lake.
