They will grow healthy under ambient room light in a bowl of water. The most critical thing is keeping the water well oxygenated and fresh with frequent water changes. You should not allow sediment to build up on the balls. This may be prevented by holding the balls under running cold water to clean them and wring out any accumulated dirt. Growth is extremely slow and contrary to aquarium myths they cannot out-compete other forms of algae or other plant species for nutrients. Other faster growing hair or filament algae can grow on top of a Marimo ball just as easily as it would on a rock or piece of wood.
