Specialized Quarters For Your Plant

Hydroponics is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, without soil; and the Eve Lamp here allows you to do just that. It may seem a bit frivolous to have a dedicated home just for a single plant, but those with serious green-thumbs will probably appreciate this. It’s ideal for plants like herbs and salads and even Venus fly traps! Besides lookin pretty on a table-top, the lamp comes with an indicative system to let you know how caring you have been towards the greens.

The top half of the lamp comes off so that you can give the plant some natural light. But in case you’ve placed the pot in a dingy corner, you can switch on the 6 LEDs to provide the same. When the plant is low on water, a blue light comes on to indicate it and when it’s hungry for some nutrients, the red light glows. You can load in the nutrients (either tablet or liquid form) and water via the hole covered by the cork bung.

Like I said earlier, you may think it’s too much of a trouble for just one plant, but going by the aesthetics and visual appeal, it doesn’t seem too bad a concept.

    whats better for the plant LED’s or sunlight? (which last time i checked is free!)

    Is it for weeds?

    Like everything about this design except the ugly wooden stand which looks a lot like an after thought. Something more ergonomic but still made of wood would not have been difficult to design or make.

    Some points to your comments:

    1. It is not for weed…and no, you weren’t the first person to come up with that.

    2. That’s basil, so if it is the plant from resident evil then the fils are clearly getting soft.

    3. The light can be removed which not only allows users to get full access to the plant but also allows them to utilise natural light. However not all households have great access to good natural light, especially all year round. Think of some scandinavian houses which only get a full days sunlight for part of the year.

    4. The wooden base was not an after thought. It is meant to provide a solid base for the device and its styling is meant to contrast against the curved white main body part both in material choice and form.
