When I Grow, You Grow

There can be strong emotional connections between plant growers and the plant during the growth cycle. From the moment the seed is planted, to the time when the plant dies, it is monitored by the grower. This monitoring is often subconsciously scheduled into the user’s daily routine.

By re-fusing the alarm into the plant’s living environment, this product creates an experience which links the daily growth and advancement of the user’s life, with continuous growth of the plant. Light sources are activated as the user’s alarm activates, and turns off manually when the user goes to bed. When the user is awake going about his/her day, “growing”, so is the plant.

The product also helps to promote the indoor growth of plants regardless of the availability of natural sunlight. Studies show exposure to LEDs encourage photosynthesis. LEDs provide a sensible solution to energy efficient artificial lighting.

An alarm clock thats makes a green thumb out of all of us. Win-win in my book.

    Yeah, it’s reeeeeally good. The funniest part of the photosynthesis is at night, when the plant consumes O2 and exhales CO2, slowly sufocatting the poor sleeping man.

  • LED says:

    LED grow light should be away from the plants at least 6-12inches. It doesn’t need to be full spectrum also. There is specific range that is suitable for plants. needs more research I guess.

  • Cerberus says:

    plants need regulated cycles of light to maintain vegetive (sic)and flowering cycles – changing the legnth of “daylight” each day will not produce a healthy plant, just a sad , stunted, confused one.

    • LED says:

      no, blue is for vegetive stage and red is for flowering and fruits. Plants do not need full range of light for vegetive. research.
