They’re called ‘mossquariums.’ The Atwater Village store Potted introduced them this spring: living balls of spongy algae that are oddly cute.

They’re sold in kits that include decorative rock, colored glass, shells and a piece of driftwood.


Potted said they can be packaged for shipping and should last for months.
