Illuminated Micro Gardens

Etsy's Valsfer Shop Specializes in Eco Lighting Fixture Planters

— May 9, 2017 — Eco
Available on Etsy's Valsfer shop, this micro garden concept is a half lighting fixture, half planter. The hybrid table lamp is not only aesthetically pleasing, but is also functional, acting as a mood light in bedroom, living room or office spaces.

This lamp's organic contents require no soil for growth -- the product is primarily designed to house microgreens and wheetgrass -- and are completely safe for those with curious pets. Featuring an orb-like construction, this eco lighting fixture "uses hydroponic cultivation to create a natural plant growth environment, without GMOs."

The product is equipped with a sophisticated and intuitive watering system, and relies on built-in LEDs for growth. This table lamp boasts a multi-functional design, doubling as a micro garden that is sculptural, compact and most importantly eco-friendly.
