Cautiously fill the compartment with water that is cool or room temperature.

That is on the grounds that they haven't consumed all the water to sink down yet. Show restraint — as the green growth assimilates the water, it will sit on the rocks once more.

A great variety of this game plan is to put a shell face up on the rocks to hold a particular greenery ball. It resembles a green growth rendition of a pearl in a clam.

To think about your Marimo greenery balls, keep them out of direct daylight. Change the water at regular intervals (keeping about a fourth of the old water in the compartment). Also, turn the balls once in a while so they don't go level on the base. Moreover, you can press them and move them around your palms to keep up their round shape.
