Doctoring My Marimo, Part 3

My marimo had recovered quite well after I stopped placing it in direct sunlight, but it was split in two and looked quite unattractive.

Therefore, I took some thread and am trying to shape it back together into a ball. 

It looks a bit ragged, and I would like to clean out the stray bits of algae at the bottom of the bottle but it seems a shame to throw them away, considering how long it takes for marimo to grow.

 I plan to leave it like this for a year or so and see where it ends up.

I hope you wouldn't mind updating us on your marimo; I'd love to see how it's doing!
