Self-Sustaining Environment Orb


I am looking for a product - not sure if it is still on the market. I last saw it a few years ago at a store called “Natural Wonders”, which I believe either went bankrupt or merged with another company. I remember viewing these “Self-Sustaining Orbs” – a small circular/oval environment containing tiny organisms as well as different plants. If anyone has seen this product recently, or know where to find - please let me know.



I Googled Self-Sustaining Orbs an above was one of the links.

Some of these sealed ‘biospheres’ had a tendency to grow algae on the inside, covering the glass, so you ended up with a water filled green glass ball after several months.

I’ve seen it at either Brookstone or Sharper Image.
