Another folklore about them is that there was once a daughter of a tribe chieftain who fell involve w/ a commoner, the parents were against of their love so the two lovers left all of their possessions and escaped together. It is said that their deep and strong love metamorphosed into Marimo and that they dwell in the dark bottom lake of Akan happily ever after.
So yeah Marimos are kind of popular gift to someone you want to spend the rest of your life with, cause it is a symbol of overcoming tribulations and suffering in pursue of true love.
Holy shit. lol. I’m not really superstitious but to own such a positive cute algae is enough to make my daily atmosphere brighter.
I named my Marimo Midou/Midousuji because I finally binge watched Yowamushi Pedal’s 2nd season after it recently ended and omg all my hatred for Midousuji turned into nothing lo and behold I am now a Midou loyalist lol.

KeenShrimp is the eBay store where I purchased Midou. They have this minimum order of three Marimo (for 4 pounds) so I still need to name the other 2, feel free to suggest me names!
Eh I actually bought some decors and sands but I haven’t bothered designing yet since I still need to buy a larger bowl and undecided if I want to put them all together, separate them all or what. So I hope you haven’t got tired of my pic spam because I intend to make an updated post when everything’s settled!
