Meaning ‘seaweed ball’ but actually a ball of algae which grows about 5mm a year.
They live in fresh water lakes around the world and can live for up to 100 years.

Also called a ‘love plant’ in Japan because they are given as tokens of enduring love. Legend has it that the daughter of a Japanese chief fell in love with a commoner and when their union was opposed the couple ran away but tragically fell into a lake, sunk to the bottom and turned into moss balls. They rolled around in the lake together, forever.

EASY to care for. Change the water once every 2 weeks and keep out of strong sunlight.
