This plant is so fun to have because you barely have to change its water and it stays this bright green color as long as it has enough light. Its a fun little accent piece in my collection!
they’re literally so cute and so easy to take care of. just put in cold filtered water & change the water weekly ! be sure to keep out of harsh light or they will brown or possibly die.
I love my Marimo ball, but remember to not give it direct sunlight and if it gets some then you can put it in the fridge for a day ! I recommend one though!
This lil guy is so cute and endlessly easy to care for! I stick mine where my other plants wouldn’t get enough light and it does great.
Super easy to take care of! Just be careful they don’t have zebra mussels
So cute! Easy to take care of!
How to care for Marimo
Marimo needs 0.5 cups of water every 7 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Marimo may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Marimo in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Marimo after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
