This listing is for 1 Extra Large Marimo Moss Ball, which will be 2.5 -3.5 inches or larger AFTER being in water for 4 hours. These are one of the most popular plants in the aquarium hobby, and they are widely kept as ornamental plants in jars in Japan. The moss balls generate oxygen and remove nitrates, improving water quality. If you wish, you can cut the moss ball into smaller pieces and the individual pieces will grow into separate moss balls.

This marimo ball is MUCH larger than most marimo balls on the market that are labeled as "large" or "giant." It is 2.5 to 3.5 inches in diameter - about the size of a baseball! And here's a fact that's sure to impress your friends: this moss ball's enormous size means that it must be at least 20 years old! Because of the amount of time it takes to grow, giant marimo balls like these are an EXTREMELY rare find!

Marimo balls are regarded as good luck charms in Japan, and since they have been known to live to 200 years and beyond, they are often kept as family heirlooms. Giant marimo balls, like this one, can be given as a symbolic gift to a family or close-knit group of friends, who can split the marimo ball into smaller balls and distribute them amongst themselves to represent their bonds with each other. Marimo balls are sometimes given to young children as "pets," since the only care they require is occasional water changes. Marimo balls are also though to represent everlasting love; thus, they are often used as wedding table ornaments or even gifted at weddings. They are appropriate as a gift to the bride and groom, and smaller marimo balls make wonderful take-home gifts for the guests that will serve as mementos of the newly-weds' special day.
