This glowing orb is filled with the same bioluminescent algae found on glowing beaches

While it may not entirely be possible to travel to those Instagram-worthy glowing beaches, Pyrofarms’ Bio Orb brings that very glowing phenomenon right to you! Behold the Bio Orb, a hand-blown glass sphere filled with seawater and living bioluminescent phytoplankton (dinoflagellates, scientifically speaking). These phytoplankton absorb light during the day and release them at night, but only when agitated. So, gently swirl the orb around and the water comes to life with that mysterious blue glow, looking like you’ve got actual galaxies suspended in the orb!

The glowing algae (or dinoflagellates) are living organisms that follow the circadian clock, like humans, sensing when it’s night time (past sunset). The closer it gets to midnight, the more they shine. They’re pretty easy to take care of too, requiring regular room temperature and moderate light during the day. Apart from presenting you with a mystic light show at night, the algae provide a pretty neat service during the day by absorbing CO2 and other airborne toxins and releasing fresh oxygen to purify your air! Did you know that microalgae are responsible for up to 75% of the oxygen we breathe?! Pretty incredible, isn’t it??

Bioluminescent Bio Orb

The Bioluminescent Bio-Orb is an interactive night light, air purifier, objet d’art, conversation starter and science lesson all in one classic glass sphere.

The Bioluminescent Bio-Orb is filled with bioluminescent dinoflagellates (plant-plankton). Easy to care for, like a house plant, the Bio-Orb will produce natural light at night (bioluminescence) when gently swirled.

Bioluminescence is a natural light produced by living organisms. Dinoflagellates produce bioluminescence as a defense mechanism. Dinoflagellates are at the base of the ocean’s food web. Predators induce bioluminescence when preying on Dinoflagellates. It is hypothesized that the light acts as a burglar alarm to attract a larger predator who will eat the dinoflagellate predator. Dinoflagellates produce blue light because blue light wavelengths are more compact and travel more efficiently through water.

Like many people, dinoflagellates have a circadian clock that helps them discern daytime from nighttime. Dinoflagellates collect light energy during their ‘day cycle’ and produce bioluminescence during their ‘night cycle’. Dinoflagellates will not produce light (bioluminescence) during their daytime cycle. Steady changes to their light conditions will change their day and night cycle.
