Bonsai time

For those of you who have no idea what a Marimo is:

Marimo (Japanese: 毬藻 marimo), also known as Cladophora ball, Lake ball, or Moss Balls in English, is a species of filamentous green algae (Chlorophyta) found in a number of lakes in the northern hemisphere. A marimo is a rare growth form of the species where the algae grow into large green balls with a velvety appearance. Colonies of such balls are known only to form in Iceland, Japan and Estonia.

It is said that taking good care of the plant will make one's wishes come true...
