Bioluminescent Bio-Orb (Large)

Regular price $79.00 Sale

The Large Bioluminescent Bio-Orb is spectacular when swirled at night.  The natural light produced by the PyroDinos (living algae) in the Bio-Orb is called bioluminescence.

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 a 15cm glass micro-aquarium filled with bioluminescent plant-plankton (algae).  Easy to care for, like a house plant, the Bio-Orb will produce natural light at night (bioluminescence) when gently swirled.  The Bio-Orb will also remove CO2 and other airborne toxins during the daytime while replenishing fresh oxygen for your room environment.       

The Large Bioluminescent Bio-Orb is the biggest Bio-Orb available and will light up naturally, night after night, with minimal care.  The Bio-Orb requires moderate daytime lighting (artificial or natural light).  The living PyroDinos in the Bio-Orb are natural marine plankton (algae) that are found in oceans all over the world.  These plankton utilize light to grow (like a plant) and they light up at NIGHT when gently swirled or moved.   

Bio-Orbs are similar to indoor plants that clean the air and remove toxins.  The Bio-Orb pulls CO2 and other toxins out of the air and produces fresh oxygen.

What’s included
  • One six-inch (15cm) diameter glass sphere (flat bottom)
  • Two pouches of PyroDinos dinoflagellates 14oz (400ml)
  • DinoNutrients 7oz (200ml)
  • Vented silicone stopper
  • Care Instructions 

Remove the caps from PyroDino pouches.  Holding over a sink, pour entire contents of PyroDino pouches into the large Bio-Orb.  Place large Bio-Orb in a moderately lighted area.  Wait five to seven days before feeding with DinoNutrients.   PyroDinos require daily light and moderate temperatures to survive. 


PyroDinos will only light up at NIGHT, in the dark when gently swirled. PyroDinos will NOT light up during Daytime hours!

    I recommend this product

    I had had a few of these spheres before from another company, and these are definitely brighter and healthier. I think it is the larger glove allowing for more air in the bowl.

    Happy with purchase

    Arrived so quickly and already glowing and happy on arrival. My last orb died but these have arrived already seemingly sturdier and plentiful, fingers crossed they�ll last ages. Saw them on a beach in the middle of nowhere once and blew my mind- they carry such beautiful memories of that trip, fab! Bought a second one for a friend with similar nostalgic memories.

    Cool but didn’t last very long....

    The products concept is really cool. It’s really interesting to watch the Dinoflagellates glow when disturbed at night and overall very low maintenance. However I ordered this product a little less than a month ago and my Dinoflagellates seem to all be dead. They haven’t glowed in a few days (during the night cycle) and the water looks a lot clearer than when I first put it in the orb. Followed all directions, my Apartment doesn't go over or under the temperature range suggested and I keep it out of direct sunlight but still they have managed to die in less than a month. :/ might try again and see if I get similar results.


    If you ordered a little less than a month ago then you should contact PyroFarms and inquire about their 60-Day guarantee. - have your order number.
