Marimos and Terrarium!

photo (6)

I bought these Marimo from a stall set up by Give a plant at Clarke Quay last week and I love them! Give a plant is set up by a guy who has green fingers and who strives to convince people to own plants! Marimos are sort of self sustainable with little effort required except to change the water once a month! I am going to put this in our Masterbed room’s toilet! He thinks it’s a waste of money to buy a moss ball! Haha. These Marimo are from Hokkiado!

I also bought a Terrarium from they same store! This will be in the guest’s toilet!

    btw, how much did they cost ? I was sadly thinking of fake flowers to brighten up the bathrooms..but this is so much better..

      Hi G thanks for the encouragement! Hopefully it will be nice and not too much of a clutter! :)

      I bought the marimos at $15 and the terrarium at $25! You can also make your own terrarium at a lower price with stuff from ikea! I saw a writeup on that before! Have fun!
