Taxiphyllum 'Biosphere-Ball'


A special feature for the design of an underwater landscape are the free-floating Biosphere Balls. They have a strong buoyancy and are "anchored" in the substrate with the help of a transparent thread and a counterweight. When "draped" at different heights, a group of three Biosphere Balls looks its best. Shrimps love to visit the moss balls - here they can graze undisturbed on the green cushions for food.
Tip: To ensure that the balls retain their beautiful spherical shape, the moss should be regularly cut into shape. As with all moss products, fresh and clear water is optimal for healthy growth.
