How does My.Glo handle growth and dehydration?
Our products stop growing on day 10 of colonization when we dehydrate them. We dehydrate at a specific temperature to ensure the best outcome.
How Can Mycelium Improve Air Quality?
If you've observed cleaner, fresher air since introducing a My Glo mycelium pendant to your space, it's not just in your head. The magic behind this is the incredible properties of mycelium:
- Natural Filtration: The dense network of mycelium can act like a passive filter, trapping particles and pollutants, much like how a HEPA filter captures dust, pollen, and other particulates.
- Pollutant Absorption: Think of mycelium as nature's activated carbon. Some fungi can absorb and break down certain airborne chemicals, keeping your air less polluted.
- Humidity Regulation: Just as plants play a role in regulating indoor humidity, so does mycelium. A balanced humidity reduces mold growth, leading to better air quality.
- Microbial Balance: Mycelium introduces a specific microbial community that might positively influence your indoor air ecosystem, akin to having air-purifying plants in your room.
So, while your My Glo light adds a touch of beauty to your decor, it's also hard at work making your indoor environment healthier. It's nature and science, beautifully intertwined.
How durable and long lasting are My Glo products?
While they have an infinite shelf life indoors, direct exposure to outdoor elements for prolonged periods will cause decomposition.
Dried mycelium is strong and solid material similar to a soft wood.
Can My.Glo products be used in moist environments, such as bathrooms?
They can withstand moist environments, but prolonged immersion or direct contact with water will cause them to biodegrade
What drives the innovation behind My.Glo products?
We're inspired by nature's genius. Our goal is to bring sustainable, functional, and aesthetic solutions from nature into everyday living spaces.
How does My.Glo ensure product safety?
Our products are cultivated in a sterile environment and undergo thorough drying and curing before shipment, ensuring their safety for consumers.
