What is the Dino Sphere?

The Dino Sphere is BioPop’s salute to nature — a solar powered showpiece for one of the world’s most extraordinary phenomena.  Simple and elegant, the Dino Sphere is an interactive living world that glows brilliantly when swirled at night. The natural blue glow emitted by the Dino Sphere is bioluminescence, produced by thousands of tiny marine plankton called dinoflagellates.

The Dino Sphere is the perfect objet d’art for all types of contemporary and classic decor — and is sure to excite the imaginations of anyone in its orbit!

Choose from two sizes: 4" diameter or 6" diameter (10cm or 15cm diameter respectively)

  • Hand-blown glass semi-sphere with a flat bottom
  • Living, bioluminescent dinoflagellates (in Blue Dino Food formulation)
  • Ventilated silicone plug
  • Care instructions

  • ATTENTION: The Dino Sphere Gift Option is not initially delivered with Dinoflagellates.  The Dinoflagellates are shipped when the 'Fill 'er Up' coupon is redeemed.

Dino Sphere Care

Moderate lighting (indirect sunlight or artificial room light) is ideal.  Keep Dino Sphere away from direct sunlight or intense light conditions.  Low light conditions are optimal versus intense light.

The ideal temperature for Dino Sphere is 68F (20C).  Keep the Dino Sphere within a temperature range of 63F to 77F (17C- 25C).  A sudden drastic change in temperature is not recommended.

Dino Sphere Lifetime:  A Dino Sphere will produce light for several months by providing consistent moderate lighting and moderate temperatures.  To extend the lifetime of Dino Sphere, add small amounts of Dino Food or Dino Food Blue every few months.

Bioluminescence:  The Dino Sphere will only light up when swirled in a dark room during nighttime hours.  The Dino Sphere will not light up during daytime hours, even in a dark room.   The Dino Sphere will generally start to produce light after about an hour into its nighttime phase when swirled in the dark.  The light intensity will increase as the night progresses.
