It is called an oasis. This product is shipped dry and holds an amazing amount of water. It was developed in the 1950's for florists who, before that time, had used the glass "frog", chicken wire, and other such things to hold the flower stems in place. There are a couple of companies that make the product today, but Smitherman's is the oldest of the companies and coined the name Oasis.

What makes water green?

Usually, algae (AL jee) -- tiny plants. Algae can grow on surface of the water or on rocks and other stuff on the bottom. Sometimes it's not the water that's green, but the lake bottom or stream bottom. In shallow areas, sunlight reflects off the algae growing on the bottom and makes the water look green. High concentrations of copper can also make water look green.

When a sponge is submerged in water, the water enters the sponge through the tiny holes in the sponge. The sponge fills up with water, as a balloon fills with air, only not as visibly.
