There's a certain brightness that living things (like plants or flowers) bring to any space, especially office spaces or rooms without much natural light. But you might not have a green thumb (in fact, you might have just the opposite) and sometimes taking care of houseplants can be an extra worry you don't want to contend with. Luckily, there's this Bioluminescent Bio-Orb — it's a beautifully glowing sphere filled with bioluminescent PyroDinos (dinoflagellates) that makes a lovely addition to any space (and you don't have to worry about watering it).

An ideal gift for science nerds and anyone else who accidentally murders houseplants, this Bioluminescent Bio-Orb produces natural light (bioluminescence) at night when it's gently swirled. All you need to do to ensure these living micro-organisms continue to dance their magical nightly waltz is open it upon arrival. Just place the orb with the PyroDinos (living algae) in an area that receives low to moderate light during the daytime.


Just keep in mind, PyroDinos will only light up at night — and only when they're stimulated with some gentle movement (kind of like that one goldfish you had when you were little). Usually, this Bioluminescent Bio-Orb is $49, but you can get it here for $42.99.
