They are a type of algae that naturally grows in a lake in Japan and can also be found in Iceland and a few other places.
They are extremely easy to take care of, unlike other plants. Just give them a little bit of light once in a while to keep them healthy and green. Roll them over once in a while to help them keep a round shape. And if kept alone, you can put them in a bowl or vase with regular tap water, which you should change every 1-2 weeks. If kept with fish, make sure the fish won't eat plants. And do what you normally do with fish: change 25% of the cycled water every week.
And that's pretty much it. You don't need to inject CO2
, or add any dirt or fertilizers. They are super easy.
