Lustables: Living EcoSphere

Ogle at Mother Nature in miniature. 

Inside of this hand-blown glass sphere is a living, thriving ecosystem. The sphere from VivaTerra is comprised of a self-sustaining ecosystem of plants, live shrimp, algae, and other micro-organisms.

As it contains living creatures, providing it with indirect light and moderate temperatures are essential. It also comes with a handbook, which should explain just what the heck is going on in microscopic detail.

Cost: $89. Hours spent ogling Mother Nature in miniature: countless.
