An Intelligent Indoor Plant Light

by Charlie Nardozzi


It’s great to brighten up a cold winter day by growing plants under lights indoors. Even a small African violet or orchid on a desk or table can help lift spirits. Now a new indoor plant light system makes growing small flowering plants easier. The Desktop Intelligent Plant Grow Light has an automatic, computerized timer that will turn the full spectrum 9-watt fluorescent lamp light on and off every day, simulating the changing length of days with the passing seasons. The plant "thinks" it is outdoors, and so it thrives.

The Intelligent Plant Grow Light also has an adjustable neck that stretches to 14 inches tall, a soil moisture sensor that indicates when it’s time to water, and a 5-1/2-inch-diameter pebbled base that catches excess water yet keeps the pot above the water, reducing the risk of roots rotting.
