Bioluminescence can be observed in this mixture of marine dinoflagellates from the genus Pyrocystis. These dinoflagellates begin to glow when agitated and are common in tropical waters. Their bioluminescence is an unusual defense mechanism and provides a great opportunity to discuss animal adaptations.

This culture requires a high light level of 200 to 400 foot-candles of fluorescent light 18 to 24” from the culture in 12-hr cycles. The medium is Bioluminescent Dinoflagellate, and the optimum growth temperature is 22° C. The culture contains 30 mL of material and comes with our FREE Culturing Algae manual.

Note: Bioluminescent dinoflagellates may not bioluminesce upon arrival; they may need a week or more to recover bioluminescent ability after being shipped. See “CarolinaCareSheet: Bioluminescent Dinoflagellates” (on the Resources tab) for more information.
