Marimo

December 29, 2014

My boyfriend clearly knows me well. He gave me a ball of algae for Christmas and I’m delighted.

Marimos are formed from a kind of algae that lives on the bottom of cold freshwater lakes. The water currents roll the algae into balls. They’re good luck in Japan, and apparently, some people keep them as pets.
