The LiterLight - A New Kickstarter Project

Turn any 2 liter soda bottle into a beautiful LED grow light powered terrarium.

Indoor gardeners face two problems with house plants:

  • How do you keep plants from drying out?

  • How do you give your plants enough light especially in the dark and chilly winter months?

The LiterLight

The LiterLight provides a solution to both problems.  It allows you to easily create low cost terrariums from discarded 2 liter bottles.  The bottle keeps the plants moist for a longer time, and the grow light gives your plants light and heat.

The heart of the LiterLight is a compact highly efficient 1 Watt LED grow light, with a USB port connector, so that it can plug into a USB hub or USB phone charger. The USB capablity make sit easy to power several lights with a single USB hub, and makes the power plug universal.

The LiterLight is efficient because it emits light, which is tuned to a plant's photosynthesys process. Have you ever wondered why plants are green?  Well, it's because plants only absorb blue and red light spectra, and reflect green light.  Since white lights emit all frequencies of light, they waste power.

The LiterLight also saves power because it only turns on when it's too dark, using an internal light sensor.

We also created accessories for the light to make creating a bottle terrarium easy and fun.  We provide bottle clips which keep the two sides of the liter bottle joined, and a bottle stopper which allows you to adjust the height of the light inside of the bottle.  All you need to provide is a bottle and potting soil.

The LiterLight  does not have to be used with a liter bottle, they can be used in aquarium terrariums, or even with regular house plants, by clipping the lights to a decorative pole.
