Create a mini Rainforest in your workplace...
The BiOrbAIR 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. As a result, many plants, such as Orchids, can thrive as nature intended.
The BiOrbAIR uses a treated, sterilised coir compost as the growth medium to cultivate the plant roots. The coir 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 needed because the lighting is arranged in a six LED array at the top of the sphere. This emits the perfect light output to drive natural growth and prevent plants bending towards a single light source. To discourage stagnation and condensation within the BiOrbAIR a constantly running fan recycles the air through a replaceable carbon filter. 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 the preset 75% Relative Humidity. The BiOrbAIR is made from blown acrylic, not glass. Acrylic insulates nearly twice as well as glass and is 23% clearer. Glass allows 70% of light to pass through, acrylic allows 93%. Acrylic is also 10 times stronger than glass.
