The New Indoor Sun

The urban landscape makes it difficult for us humans to experience the bliss of natural sunlight at home, thanks to the towering high-rises. So how can we expect our houseplants to flourish or pamper them with the natural goodness of sun? Unless of course, we get sneaky and trap some solar power in the “Solight” and then hood it over the plant; trick it into thinking it’s getting some natural sunshine! Clever idea and no one will know how you manage to keep those plants happy…because you can stash the Solight away when not required!

    Why, why so many designers like 'to use' in it's projects these 'solar energy'???
    I think this is the result of lack of knowledges 8(
    They learning hot to draw something what looks good, but not to think about 'what for' and 'how' before…

    Sorry, but I can't see it once again 8^(
    Just to produce enough light for small plants you will need 20~50 such 'LED lamps' 8(
    To power them your solar panel must be as your kitchen window in size. To store it's energy you will need et least 2x50Ah accu.
    And such 'green tec' will dispose Cd, Pb, As a lot of different acids -> your "green energy" will make dirty, stinking dustbin from our planet !

    So… You want to give plants artificial sunlight by a lamp thats powered by sunlight?

    Confucius – your comment was much shorter than my – but it is so clear!

    if you have access to sunlight that produces enough solar energy then why cant you just put the plant under the sun? LOL

    Moreover plants are alive … and can feel. LED light can make them feel stressful … its one of the minus of LED lights.

    This device will BLOCK more light then it generates. Solar panel efficiencies are AT MOST 30% for a typical cell.

    Thus, the plant will have received less light then had you never used this device at all.

  • I understand this was thought for houses that have a short time of direct sunlight and want to extend that time. The problem is the complexity of the solution for such a complementary need.

    Where can I buy the solight or other similar devices for giving solar light to indoor plants
