The biOrb Air is a fully automated terrarium that creates the perfect micro-climate for growing tropical plants. This micro-climate replicates the natural conditions under a tropical forest canopy, enabling many species of plants, such as Orchids, to thrive as nature intended.
The biOrb Air uses a treated sterilised coir compost as the growth media to cultivate the plant roots. The coir compost is placed on top of capilliary matting that draws water up to the compost from a small water reservoir in the base. The capilliary 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. To discourage stagnation and condensation within the biOrb Air, 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.
