Grasslamp: Hydroponic Planter Brings Style and Light

Everybody can start growing hydroponically with this light spending planter for the desktop.

In the 18th century, researchers discovered that plants absorb essential mineral nutrients as inorganic ions from water. In natural conditions, soil acts as a mineral nutrient reservoir, however the soil itself is not essential to plant growth. When the mineral nutrients in the soil dissolve in water, plant roots are able to absorb them. When the required mineral nutrients are introduced into a plant’s water supply artificially, soil is no longer required for the plant to thrive. This method is called hydroponics.

The Grasslamp is a hydroponic desktop garden, unifying the slick design of the 21st century with the natural growth of microgreens. It is planter, lamp and artful decoration at the same time. The lamp, which works with power-saving LEDs, aids the plant in growing and spends a soft white light to its surrounding.

The Grasslamp will be available as a standalone object as well as desktop lamp. The production will start in September.
