Me, too!!! I just don't understand why it's so damn hard to keep a plant alive - all I have to do is water it! I seem to kill plants just by looking at them. Thankfully, aquarium plants are easier, but I recently took in a little root bound daisy, and I'm praying I don't kill him

I'm interested in purchusing marimo moss one day. Would anyone mind telling me the care? Do they require fertilizer?

No, they are the easiest plants ever! That's why I bought one They're happy with regular light, or light from a window, and they don't need any ferts. In Japan, they are kept in jars as pets.

I bought Clyde, who is almost baseball sized, from Petco for $10. That was before I knew there were so many better priced ones on eBay! In fact, I just got 5 baby moss balls for 99 cents :)

Just a warning, I've never had plants or moss from overseas not get taken by customs. It's no fun to get an empty package. Aqmagic was one of the worst.

So, Good Luck to you!

My fish Malcom just ripped his apart so now I have moss bits floating all over his tank. x.x I am so mad at him. He only had it for a day too.

Actually you are right. I do not have a green thumb and plants are much harder for me than fish. So maybe I should be more excited about my moss ball considering it's still alive. lol
