Sometimes I struggle to really remember what life before the pandemic was. I remember it pretty well, but if someone were to snap and magically cause the virus to disappear, I’m not sure if I’d ever be able to go back to that life in an instant. The pandemic changed a lot of things, broke a lot of things, and forced a lot of us to restrategize. The guys at Modern Sprout know this too well, as their company, developed as a labor of love over time, suddenly found itself without retailers to stock and sell their products. Quickly deciding to pivot so that the company and its range of plant-loving products could continue to thrive, Modern Sprout returned to the very place they started… Kickstarter.
The Uplift Planter is an elegant combination of an elevated planter and an app-enabled grow-light. Designed to be used indoors, and styled to complement indoor spaces, this planter integrates the grow-light into it. The Uplift Planter grow light contains the color spectrum needed to support healthy plant growth while emitting a natural light that compliments your home’s decor, not disrupts it.
There’s a simplistic beauty to the Uplift Planter and its wireframe design. This minimalist approach helps the Uplift complement most contemporary homes (although the Uplift in an art-deco home would look incredible too). The planter comes with a base that it docks into – made of metal and powder-coated in a variety of colors to add a pop to your space. Mounted on the side of the planter is a height-adjustable light arm with a full-spectrum LED lamp that shines light directly on the planter below. The lamp is controlled by an app that allows you to program it, even fully customize your own schedule and control its brightness based on the amount of natural light already in your space. Apart from being height-adjustable to suit your plants, the light arm is removable too, and can be placed into any other planter to give other plants a boost. It’s a simple, well-executed idea that was born after Modern Sprout realized planters and grow-lights have almost always existed as separate products, and never a single solution. In that regard, the Uplift does what it sets out to. It ‘uplifts’ your plant by allowing it to grow, uplifts itself too, with that height-adjusting lamp that ‘grows’ with your plant, and uplifts the space it’s kept in, with an aesthetic that I can only describe as Sparking Joy. Don’t you think so too??

Uplift Planter by Modern Sprout
The Uplift Planter is an elevated plant stand with an app-enabled grow light designed to seamlessly integrate living green into any space.
Plants have become the new critical home essential. With each one you bring into your house, your further perforate the barrier between indoors and out, between nature and nurture.
The problem with most grow lights quickly becomes apparent the moment you decide to use one at home. They’re harsh on the eyes because they emit light in a spectrum optimized solely for plants, not people. The Uplift Planter grow light contains the color spectrum needed to support healthy plant growth while emitting a natural light that compliments your home’s decor, not disrupts it.
A plant’s proximity to a grow light is critical for success which is why they have made theirs adjustable so you can grow plants ranging from small seedlings to large botanicals. The adjustable light arm is removable too, so you can “stake” it into other plants that might need an extra boost.
