'Marimo Moss Ball'

Aegagropila linnaei

Their name is deceptive... these guys are not actually moss, but rather a form of Algae that grows in rich velvety green perfectly spherical clumps.

They can grow up to 30cm across, live for up to 200 years and are easily propagated by gently tearing them in half and rolling them into new balls. All you need to add are a nice piece of glassware, some decorative pebbles and a splash of water!

Why Hutch selects me

More of a pet than a houseplant - these guys are so unique and act as a great table centrepiece. Pop them in a jar of water, give them some love and you'll be passing them on to your grandkids in decades to come...

How to look after me

Watering: Change the water every couple of weeks

Light: Keep out of the sun

Why I'm unique

We work hard to provide a clear photograph and description of your chosen plant. However, all plants are unique and, whilst the pot size remains the same, there is always variation in size and shape from one plant to the next. Please note Marimo Moss balls in glassware are available to purchase in store only.
