Product Description

The Bioluminescent Bio-Orb is an interactive night light, air purifier, objet d'art, conversation starter, and science lesson all in one incredible glass sphere. This 4" glass micro-aquarium is filled with bioluminescent plankton (algae) that produce mesmerizing blue light at night when gently swirled.

The Bio-Orb will light up naturally, night after night, with minimal care. The living PyroDino marine plankton responsible for this glow are classified as Pyrocystis fusiformis (aka Dinoflagellates) and can be found in oceans all over the world. Much like a houseplant, they require light to grow, and work to refresh your space by pulling CO2 and other pollutants out of the air and replacing it with fresh oxygen.

To get started, simply pour the contents of the included PyroDino pouches into the Bio-Orb, then place it in a moderately well lit area out of direct sunlight. Wait five to seven days before feeding with DinoNutrients, and watch as your unique miniature aquarium comes to life in spectacular fashion.

If the algae is sealed in a container, how does it work as an air purifier, as listed in the description?
