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.

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.

Product Information Specifications for 1 Super Giant Marimo Moss Ball by Aquatic Arts Below:
Zones 4 - 11. This aquatic perennial's tuberous roots colonize the soil at the bottom of earth-bottom ponds, or the soil in containers fully submerged in lined ponds. The stems of the leaves can reach the surface of water that's nearly two feet deep-and then continue upward, above the water, a few inches or even a foot farther. The roots don't tolerate frost but the tubers and roots are hardy anywhere the water above the soil is deep enough that the pond's surface-ice doesn't freeze all the way down to the soil, and yet is not so deep that their leaves can't reach at least a bit above the water's surface to get the full sun they need to grow and flower: From the frost-free tropics of Zone 11, then, all the way down to the seriously-Wintered Zone 4 of Northern Vermont and Canada. Few plants, aquatic or terrestrial, have such a world-wide versatility.

Mermaid Weed - 2 Bunches - Live Aquarium Plant by Aquatic Arts
Manufacturer: Aquatic Arts
Brand: Aquatic Arts
Mermaid Weed, also known as Saw-Tooth Hygro, has the potential to make a dramatic statement in any tank in which it is planted. Its leaves start out a vibrant green color with choppy, serrated edges. When allowed to grow under high-intensity lighting, the leaves will become more bristle-like, resembling tiny, delicate combs. Additionally, the leaves will gradually change from just green to a variety of pink and golden hues. This plant will certainly add a pop of color to your tank! This plant is considered moderately difficult to grow and maintain, so it may not be ideal for beginning aquatic plant enthusiasts. If kept under insufficient lighting and/or water lacking in nutrients, Mermaid Weed tends to shed its leaves. Carbon dioxide injection is highly recommended for this plant to truly thrive. Mermaid Weed grows at a moderate to slow pace, so propagating doesn't need to be done too often. When propagation is needed, this plant should be propagated much like other stem plants. The plant grows in shoots that can be trimmed and replanted into your substrate. The vibrant tops of the stems can be cut off and replanted to spread the colorful parts of the plant around. The stem bottoms can be thrown out or left in the substrate to give the plant a more bushy texture. For each order of this plant, we ship 2 separate bunches of multiple stems that range from 6 to 8 inches. They should not grow much taller than that, but should become more wide and dense depending on how you choo...
Giant Pussy Willow (Salix chaenomeloide ) Catkins the size of a rabbit's foot. Rare According to an old Polish legend, many springtime s ago a mother cat was crying at the bank of the river in which her kittens were drowning. The willows at the river's edge longed to help her, so they swept their long graceful branches into the waters to rescue the tiny kittens who had fallen into the river while chasing butterflies. The kittens gripped on tightly to their branches and were safely brought to shore. Each springtime since, goes the legend, the willow branches sprout tiny fur-like buds at their tips where the tiny kittens once clung.
