The Air Bonsai is the new way to add live plants to your home! It is a magnetic floating pot (you can tell your friends it's magical), where you can plant any type of plant or flower- the classic plant would be a bonsai tree (a miniature version of a large tree), but it's all up to you. When connected to a power source, the Air Bonsai rotates at 360 degrees, completely in the air!
the product does not include the plant- only the pot and the base.
Since our rock shaped pots are made of real rocks, they may look slightly different from the pictures.
How does it work?
The Air Bonsai plant floats about 0.8 inches off the pot's base, using the negative reaction of two opposing poles of the magnet, pushing away from each other.
What are the benefits of the Air Bonsai?
Other than being beautiful and calming to look at, the Air Bonsai is a unique interesting way to insert live plants into your home, and these have some tremendous effects on your environment and health.
Our environment is filled with positive ions, being discharged into the air mainly from the electronic devices in our surroundings. These positive ions are making us tired and lethargic, as well as increased symptoms of depression and respiratory issues. The way to combat these symptoms is... you guessed it! Negative ions. Negative ions can be found in plenty in nature in the vicinity of mountains, seas, rivers etc. That's why we feel so calm after visiting nature.
The Air Bonsai discharges a small number of negative ions into the air, and when placed strategically, can help in a verity of areas:
Minimize allergic symptoms- the negative ions clear the air of air born allergens that might affect you in through different seasons.
Improve sleep- negative ions have positive effects in normalizing the production of serotonin in the brain, which helps you sleep.
Increase your sense of well being and mental clarity- by combating the negative effects of the positive ions in your environment, these negative ions are also called "natural anti-depressants".
Relaxing- negative ions are reported to have positive relaxing effects and help normalize your breathing rate. Of course with the Air Bonsai, it's visually serene, calming rotation helps too.
Where to place it?
While it's entirely up to you and your aesthetic sense, we do have some recommendations for optimal benefits:
Next to electronic devices- for example at your desk next to the computer, to maximize the release of negative ions next to the electronic's positive ions.
At your meditation area- if you meditate regularly, you must have a dedicated area in the house for this purpose. Adding the bonsai plant will not only add to the decor but also add a calming effect.
Wherever you entertain friends- they will be impressed by the beautiful decor, and everyone will soak up the calming vibes.
These lovelies don't require any special caring, and are pretty easy to look after:
Plant the plant of your choice in the pot (by the plant's instructions)
Place the base on a horizontal flat and straight surface and plug it
Hold the pot with two hands carefully, and move it vertically downwards to the center of the base
While moving the pot closer to the base, play with the position slowly, until you find the levitation point. You will know you found it when you feel a strong force holding the pot in place
Slowly let go of the pot, making sure it stays afloat
Water the plant regularly by its specific instructions- there's no need to take it off the base while you do that, but do make sure not to wet the base, and dry it immediately if it does get wet.
Base size: 5.3X1 - 6.7X2.5 inches (each base is slightly different)
Pot size: 3X2.3 - 3.5X3.1 inches (each pot is slightly different)
Don't know if it's worth the price. A cool novelty, but it has to be plugged in all the time.
I bought this as a gift and my husband loved it. I really was not hard at all ...
I bought this as a gift and my husband loved it. I really was not hard at all to get it to float. I purchased an air fern to go with it and it looks great together.
Amazing product I purchased it as a gift for my in laws and they love it! Definitely gave a wow factor! Side note, it the pot spins to fast it can overheat, so just adjust the spin to a more slow and steady rate.
It's simply soothing. Can literally stare at it for hours as it defies gravity.
"I figured it would be incredibly unstable, but it's actually so painless and easy to get it into place. You learn to feel the magnetic changeover as the base led's indicate when you have it just right. It does usually end up spinning, but seriously, I would consider that a feature/bonus. Not only does my plant float, but I get a complete 360 rotation view of it 24/7."
Absolutely love it. Gave to my son for his birthday.
Used air plants so he had little to no maintenance and care. He is studying engineering at Auburn and he and his friends were amazed.
cool gift Works great! Came in a very cool box. Girlfriend loved it as a birthday gift!
This is a nice spinning pot, its smaller than i thought so it can only hold a small plant, but its pretty cool. I wish the magnetics would have created a bigger invisible gap, but i'll take it.
Great! Such a conversation starter
Stable and silent. Excellent initial impression.
I've only owned this for a few days, but all my initial concerns went away after unboxing.
-The planter only takes a minute of practice to get it levitating. After that, it takes only a try or two.
-Once levitating, the planter is very stable. You can spin it and push it around easily and it takes quite a bit of force to knock it out of levitation. When that does happen, it just sticks to the base. But it's never done that on its own. It requires you to push it off center with more than minimal force.
-The unit is silent. No electrical hum or any other noises.
I changed my mind between this design and one of the more expansive ones about 3 times and had to reorder in the end, and the service representatives were so patient and helpful! It came in 8 days and I couldn't be happier with it!
Made for the perfect interesting and exciting gift, and much higher quality than expected. Would recommend to others over pricier alternatives.
I like that it came perfectly packed. Is really beautifull! All my friends are impressed about it. Worth it. 5 stars!
I purchased this as a gift. I went to their house and watched as they enjoyed floating the pot endlessly. I bought a second one for someone else. Also, the wives loved the floating pot for the aesthetics and both claimed they'd always wanted one and praise the gift repeatedly.
S?per strong magnet, have to really get the pot positioned right or it will slam on the base and scratch up the mirror. Other than that beautiful, my mom loved it
Luv luv luv this its so cool and unique, I have it sitting between the cubiclec right at the top so everyone walking by can see it, all of my coworkers come by to give it a lil spin from time to time.
This was okay but it�s SUPER hard to get it to stay levitating.
Simply amazing product. I bought this for my office and instead of putting a bonsai within, I decided on a Tillandsia (air plant) because they don't need soil. Though it took a short while to figure out where the sweet spot was for placement, once you get the knack of it (keep three fingers cupped on the bottom of the pot to protect it from being pulled too hard down to the base - very important!) you can take off and put back on super quickly and easily. It's a show stopper. Also sort of a meditative process as the pot gently spins. My Tillandsia loves it - and is thriving. Can't say enough about this!!
toy for adults
Awesome. Great toy for adults. Works as described.
Nothing negative to say about this product. Shipping took just 2 weeks. I ordered this item from Hawai`i and they shipped it to my nephew in San Francisco. Product is exactly as shown. Item was very attractively packaged and of course well-made too! Will definitely be getting one for myself!
Easy to use and give me peace. If I disconnected hits the glass
