The biOrbAIR is a fully automated terrarium that creates the perfect micro-climate for growing tropical plants, replicating the natural conditions under a tropical forest canopy. The biOrbAIR is an all-in-one terrarium kit with container, lighting, misting module, compost, planting media, filtration, and more!
It uses a treated sterilized coir compost as the growth media to cultivate the plant roots. This compost is placed on top of a capillary mat that draws water up to the compost from a small water reservoir in the base. The capillary action prevents the plant roots from soaking and rotting.
Natural daylight is not necessary as the lighting is arranged in a six LED array at the top of the sphere. This emits the perfect light output for encouraging natural growth and prevents plants bending towards a single light source. The light also works on an automatic 24-hour cycle, simulating sunrise, daylight, sunset and night time.
To discourage stagnation and condensation within the biOrbAIR, a constantly running fan recycles the air through a replaceable carbon filter. A small amount of fresh air is regularly introduced as part of the circulation process. To maintain the humidity within the micro-climate, water is added using an ultrasonic mister mounted in the top water reservoir. The mister generates the 'swirling' water vapour if the humidity drops below 75% RH.
