👾 Experience the magical world of bioluminescence at home.

☀️ Dinoflagellates use low light during the day (like many houseplants) to create their own energy. No batteries or electricity required. 

🔮 At night, these tiny plankton are ready to party and glow brilliantly when gently swirled.

🌊 Bioluminescent plankton live in the oceans of Earth and when they're in high concentrations, are visible as beautiful blue waves of light at night. 

🌎 A fun fact is that dinoflagellates use CO2 and produce oxygen. As a result, more than 1/2 the air we breathe on Earth comes from plankton.

🙋🏽‍♀️ With proper care, your Mushlume can live for a year or more. Learn more about dinoflagellates on our FAQ page.

Dinoflagellates are living sea creatures that can be sensitive to extreme temperatures and long durations without light. As a result, all live shipments are sent via an expedited service (we aim for no more than 3-days in transit). 

It is important that you receive and open live shipments immediately upon arrival. Don’t let the dinoflagellates sit in the hot sun or freezing cold. This may cause them to perish.
