Marimo Moss Ball Light Bulb Terrarium

Marimo Moss Ball Light Bulb Terrarium

Ever heard of a Marimo moss ball? It's a rare green ball of living moss/algae found exclusively in lakes in Iceland, Scotland, Japan, and Estonia where the swirling currents cause it to grow in this unique shape. Well, now you can raise your very own underwater living ball that the Japanese consider to be lucky inside this cool new Marimo Moss Ball Light Bulb Terrarium. I'm not sure why it's living in a repurposed light bulb, but this unique terrarium only requires fresh water every couple of weeks and a sunny spot to flourish. Don't worry it doesn't bite, well, at least that's not it's typical behavior.
