    Than I was duped. I could have saved $4.99. Bushwhacker sent me a fair amount of Java Moss (thanks again) and I still have some floating in a baggy full of holes while I decide where to plant it. So far I have two corks covered with it and tied in place. Today I am going to tie more on various ornaments. As I understand it, it grows profusely in the right conditions and is tolerant of less than ideal conditions.

    Bushwacker sent me some too! Thanks!

    I think I am going to try some in the spill way of my pond. A few places I have read say it grows well there. May not survive the winter, but I can always add some more!

    The PetSmart closest to me has some. I was thinking on purchasing one to see if they are real Marimo balls or java moss.

    If they are Marimos, I'll probably get a fair bit to use in both the 5g and the 10g.

    Hm, not sure about Petsmart, but the Petco I work at definitely has the legit moss balls. They also have "moss on a coconut" which is a little thing of java moss on top of a carved coconut shell that can be used as a cave with three entrances. The java moss on a coconut runs for like $11 or something though.
