About the Algae:

Anabaena variabilis is a filamentous cyanobacterium. It is photosynthetic and can also convert atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia via nitrogen fixation. Anabaena variabilis is great for studying algae blooms and photosynthesis.  It is often used for researching the beginnings of multicellular life due to its filamentous characterization and cellular-differentiation capabilities.

We have perfected the method and supplies for anyone to grow an ecologically or industrially important strain of algae. It contains everything you need to grow a laboratory-grade culture at home or at your desk, it is great for science fair projects!

NOT INCLUDED: chlorine-free water, a growing vessel (such as a 10-gallon fish tank), air supply (small air pump, not the band, but if you could get the band to sing to the culture- that would be amazing!).
