The marimo is a living moss ball found growing in lakes in Iceland, Scotland, Japan, and Estonia. Each lake's current swirls the little plant around and around so it grows naturally into a petite pom-pom shape. Its curious name is a portmanteau of two Japanese words, "mari," meaning "bouncy ball," and "mo," a term for plants that grow underwater. This sweet, sphere-shaped creature is adored around the globe: the Japanese believe that it brings good luck, and in Iceland it is believed that a well-loved marimo makes wishes come true! With Sara Reynolds's palm-sized aquarium, you can bring a bit of the marimo's magic into your life or the life of someone you love. Her light-bulb-turned-ecosystem supports this tiny good-luck charm in its own, indoor environment, making it the perfect accent for desks, tables, and dressers. To care for your marimo, simply change its water every one to two weeks (more frequently during the summer) and display it in artificial light.
