Gardens & Tabletop Water Gardens
Do you or someone you know need to relax more
Moss Acres combines all the elements of a peaceful
mossy glade with a drifting fog, to produce a truly unique tabletop
water garden that can be placed almost anywhere that is exposed to
Experience Peaceful Relaxation - Transcend
to a meditative frame of mind.
Tarumu in Japanese means relaxation, and this self-contained,
miniature "eco-system" offers an incredibly soothing experience for
the senses. Our indoor water gardens combine, natural rocks, lush moss
and ferns, and drifting fog, to provide a relaxing feeling, that otherwise,
can only be found in nature.
Since each rock formation is unique, and plantings
are arranged following set up, each Tarumu Oasis tabletop water garden
is one of a kind. Orchids or other interesting plants such as dwarf
bamboo, can also be added to provide an even more exotic look for these
indoor water gardens.
What is included?
- Charcoal-black bowl (13" wide x 4" deep) with pedestal
- Lava Rock and River Stones
- Underwater Fogger with Low / High / Off control
- Fern planted in pH neutral aquatic soil
- Assorted clumps of Hypnum / Fern Moss (Thuidium), Rock Cap
Moss (Dicranum) and Cushion Moss (Leucobryum)
What about maintenance, shipping & set-up?
Tarumu Oasis indoor water gardens are relatively self-sufficient.
Water must be added into the tabletop fountain bowl on a regular basis
however, as the fogging device will actually disperse significant amounts
of water vapor into the porous rock and air, (a valuable benefit during
dry winter months). This water vapor and saturated rock provide consistent
moisture for the moss and ferns. The water level should be kept above
the level of the fogging device.
Tarumu Oasis Japanese water gardens should be positioned
near a window with northern or eastern exposure, or somewhere else
where they will receive indirect natural light. Southern or western
exposures with direct sunlight are not recommended. A nearby power
outlet or extension cord will be needed to plug in the fogger.
Set-up is very easy: Position the fogger in the center
of the bowl. Keep your fern plant in the black plastic
container just as it arrived. Arrange lava rocks and river
stones in bowl, these will provide interesting rock outcroppings and
support the moss clumps. Fill the garden with water. Plug in and turn
on the fogger. Within 20 minutes you will have created an incredibly
relaxing indoor water garden feature for the home or office that also
makes a great gift!
