It can be a little tricky to find the levitation sweet spot, but with practice it becomes easy. Make sure the base is plugged in, and keep metal objects away so as not to interfere with the magnet. Hold the magnetic disc about 15cm (6″) above the base. Lower the disc with both hands directly over the center of the base, keeping it level until you feel the upward magnetic force supporting the weight of the disc. Gently let go, keeping it centered and level.
If it falls, simply lift the disc up and try again. Expect that it will take several attempts and may require some practice to master.
Your hover planter will gently spin for hours, allowing the air plant to receive 360° of sunlight.
The magnet I used is completely silent; there’s absolutely no hum or electronic noise. More importantly, it just looks cool!
