Our first oddity is plant genus Tillandsia.

Maybe that name doesn't ring a bell but you've probably heard of them as

air plants.

Our second oddity is so fluffy people often confuse it with a sea creature. It sure likes water but not salt water. 

 

Have you ever heard of Marimo balls?.

When changing your marimo's water,

give it a gentle massage. Sounds odd?

You'll actually be helping it to shed some

old tissue. Make sure your hands are clean, without lotion.

 

Is it slightly flat on one side? If so, that's because it has been sitting on the same angle for a long time. Mimic the motion of water more frequently.
