Bio bulb glowing plant light

BIOGLOW GLOWING PLANTS: WHAT TO EXPECT
BIOBULB™ is a second-generation Bioglow glowing plant product based on Starlight Avatar™ (for additional information please visit http://bioglowtech.com). Although Biobulb™ will not light up the room and it may take a few minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark before the glow is noticed, it is the first symbolic step to the future of plant-based sustainable light sources.
The GLOW of Starlight Avatar™ within Biobulb™ is best described as comparable in strength to starlight. The plant’s dim, ambient glow can best be appreciated in a darkened room and typically requires a few minutes for one’s eyes to adapt to the darkness before the plant’s glow is fully pronounced. To enjoy viewing the glow of Starlight Avatar™, it is important to keep in mind that the ability of the human eyes to see dim lights is influenced by the amount of light they were exposed to immediately before viewing and the age of the observer. For example, walking into a dark room from a sunny afternoon outdoors will require a longer acclimation period for one’s eyes to adapt than during the evening hours. Younger people typically notice the glow faster than do older individuals. Cataracts and other adverse eye conditions may affect one’s ability to see the glow. Depending on age and prior light exposure, certain individuals may be able to see the plant’s glow right away, whereas others will require a few minutes. When glow becomes visible, the plant’s features and glowing parts become increasingly more prominent as the eyes continue to adjust.
The LIFE SPAN of Starlight Avatar™ within Biobulb™ is 2 to 3 months, which is comparable to the natural life span of N. alata, an annual plant from which Starlight Avatar™ is derived. Many other annual plants have a similar life expectancy, typically germinating early in the summer and wilting in the fall.
CONTAINER: Starlight Avatar™ is propagated on a standard plant culture medium, which is susceptible to contamination. Opening Biobulb™ will introduce contamination and result in irreparable damage to the plant. Please refrain from unsealing Biobulb™. Opening or unsealing Biobulb™ will void the warranty.
AVAILABILITY: Biobulb™ will ship within 3 to 6 weeks from purchase date, as we custom propagate each plant per order. We will do our best to ship earlier when there are sufficient plants in stock . An e-mail notification will be sent when the product ships. Due to export/import regulations at this time, Biobulb™ is available only within the United States.
WARRANTY: There is a 14-day warranty for the product.

BIOBULB™ MAINTENANCE
LIGHT: As with any other plant, Starlight Avatar™ requires light to grow and thrive. However, please avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, as it may damage the plant.
TEMPERATURE: The optimal temperature for Starlight Avatar™ growth is around 75°F (25°C). When the plant is subjected to suboptimal temperatures (below 60°F [15°C] or higher than 85°F [30°C]), the plant may become stressed, and the glow may decrease or cease. However, the glow is typically restored within one to two days upon return to normal conditions. Prolonged exposure to suboptimal temperatures is not recommended, as it may damage the plant.
HUMIDITY: Starlight Avatar™ is highly susceptible to low humidity and water shock. The airtight Biobulb™ container maintains 100% humidity. Unsealing the container, in addition to introducing contamination, may cause the plant to dry and wilt.
INDOOR USE: Starlight Avatar™ is highly unlikely to survive in an open garden due to strong susceptibility to a variety of abiotic conditions, particularly strong light and water shock. Biobulb™ is recommended as an indoor product only.
