REASONS WHY MARIMO MOSS BALLS ROCK.
Dedicated to my moss ball, Smitty.
- •They are super low maintenanceI, an achieved plant forgetter, appreciate this. Changing water once every week or two is a task I can handle.
- •You can touch themLike a fish, a moss ball must be kept in water, but, like a dog, you can take it out and "pet" it (if you're into petting moss). It's basically the best parts of a fish plus the best parts of a dog.
- •You can't kill themUnless you dry it out, it's nearly impossible to kill, as they can live up to 200 years.
- •They bring good luckSupposedly, in traditional Japanese culture, the moss ball brings good luck (mine still has yet to do its part on this one).
- •They can "swim"Moss balls can float or sink depending on their stage in photosynthesis
- •They come in many different sizesLike people, moss balls come in every size imaginable, from the size of a pen tip, to the size of a tennis ball
