Plants can do a lot more than elevate your aesthetic; studies suggest that they can improve your productivity, make you feel happier and less anxious, and even boost your immune system. But as helpful as they are, they can also be pretty finicky, often requiring very specific conditions to thrive

If you love plants, but you don’t have as much natural light as you’d like, then you already know how tough it is to pass up (or kill) all kinds of plants because they need more sun. Well, this new planter lets you say goodbye to your low-light plant woes for good. 

The Uplift Planter by Modern Sprout comes with a built-in grow light that hovers directly over your plants. The full-spectrum light acts just like the sun for houseplants, giving them all the light they need to thrive. Even better, the light is adjustable (and fully removable), so you can make it taller as your plants grow higher.

The planter itself is pretty great too, featuring a powder-coated steel, watertight, and rust-resistant design. It also comes in three sophisticated hues that will blend with virtually any aesthetic. Plus, you can fill it with 3-4 four-inch nursery pots, two six-inch pots, or one 8-10” pot, so it’s great for plant babies and grown-ups alike.

And the planter’s built-in brains mean you can control it with a corresponding app that lets you manage factors like its light intensity and schedule, as well as choose preset settings for popular plant types. 

Modern Sprout started a Kickstarter campaign for the planter, hoping to raise $20,000 to make it a reality, and it resulted in over $100,000 in pledges before the campaign was over, so it won’t be long until you can bring it home. Head on over to the Kickstarter page to learn more.
