Marimo World #7: Reshaping the marimos

28 June 2016

It is normal for marimos to lose their spherical shape.
In their natural habitat, the water current of the river
keeps their shape as firm as a ball.
But at home, we have to nurture them
and keep their spherical shape
by gently rolling each marimo between two palms.
Do so regularly, especially during their weekly bathing time.

Sometimes, when my marimos seem splitting,
I use thread to reshape them.
I normally leave them like this for a couple of months
before I remove the thread.

It works all the time.

Happy trying!!!
