I have a planted tank that I am play testing a variety of species of plants in for LED lighting. I have tried 15 so far. One was a moss ball, it was one of two that did not make the cut. I would expect that a round mass of plant/algae material would need to move around to be of any use other than decoration. I don't find that I need to clean my plants so I wouldn't ever put one in that needed to be wrung out every once in a while.
My daughter had it with the betta originally and she did clean it every week.
If it is an algae, as Byron mentions, it can't be much use anyway.
