    Chladoflora (marimo moss ball) is an unusual aquarium plant that is extremely easy to keep in tropical environments. Create a fetching look by scattering about the aquarium in clusters.

    Needing virtually no attention, these attractive plants look great in any aquarium and are particularly popular with shrimp keepers. Shrimp will love to hop on them and spend hours cleaning away! This velvety, aquarium plant is on average 3+cm. The picture shows 3 moss balls so if you wanted 3, you would need to add that number to your shopping cart.

    Tip: If you moss balls are floating, give them a gentle squeeze underwater so any air within them is squeezed out and replaced with water.

    Note: Moss balls are a “wild-collected” product and it cannot be avoided to have hitchhikers with them. However, we clean the moss balls thoroughly before sending them. They are stored at least 4 weeks out of the water which would kill anything that lives with them in water too. If any zebra mussel is found it most likely dead and not harmful. They cannot spread either.

    Information about growing mosses:

    1. Slow growing

    Mosses are well known for being relaltively easy to grow. Due to the fact they are slow growing, it means demands are low. This means less light, less fertilisers and less care.

    2. Not too much light please

    Because all mosses are slow growing, you can't force them to grow quicker. So brighter light and loads of CO2 won't turbo charge them - actually you'll just end up stressing them out. Whilst some will always grow faster than others, mosses take time to get to the stage you want them to be. Patience.

    3. Trimming is beneficial

    Like all plants, mosses need trimming with a shaprt pair of scissors so don't hold back. Avoid them getting leggy, trim them to keep their shape and they will reward you with better growth which is a deeper green and dense.
