Complete starter kit for growing glowing microalgae (PyroDinos). Everything you need in one kit. This is the perfect starter system for anyone wanting to Grow Like a Pro. The GrowPro System is designed for culture expansion (making more PyroDinos) and classroom experimentation. The GrowPro Flasks provide an ideal environment for PyroDino Maintenance and Expansion. PyroDinos are marine microalgae (phytoplankton) and are safe (non-toxic) and easy to care for.

PyroDinos require daily light (like a plant) and moderate temperatures. Temperature range: 9C to 31C (48F to 88F)
PyroDinos are bioluminescent marine plankton classified as Pyrocystis fusiformis (aka dinoflagellates).
PyroDinos use light to grow (like a plant) and glow blue at night when disturbed. The natural light produced by these plankton is called Bioluminescence. PyroDinos will only light up at night, in the dark when gently swirled or shaken.
PyroDinos will require daily lighting (low to moderate room lighting), 8- 12 hours a day. It is OK to leave the PyroDinos in their white Spout Pouch for 1 month after delivery. Our PyroDinos have enough resources in the pouch to sustain them for 6 to 8 weeks.
These microalgae exhibit a circadian cycle, photosynthesis, produce oxygen, sequester CO2, and are the basis of the ocean food web.
PyroDinos will not survive more than 5 or 6 consecutive days without daily light.
We have been growing and selling dinoflagellates since 2011 and guarantee all our dinoflagellates for 60 days after arrival.
It is recommended to open the shipping box within 24 hours of arrival. These little plankton need light!
Live PyroDinos are shipped using USPS Priority Mail. Orders are shipped Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays to prevent weekend delays in shipping. Tracking will be provided once shipped.
Shipments to regions experiencing extreme temperatures may be held until moderate temperatures prevail. Extremes: over 92F or under 35F
International Shipping: Most international orders will ship on a Monday or Friday. A phone number is required on all international orders (for the carrier/Customs). Any duties and taxes will be payable by the purchaser.
