Project description

"Plants and their effect on human health" is a topic I have been working on intensively for several months now.

During my research I have learned a lot about how positive plants, and nature in general, affect our psyche, our body and our environment, and even just keeping houseplants can have therapeutic effects, help us reduce stress and prevent mental illness.

Therefore, I have set myself the goal to develop products that facilitate / support plant keeping and thereby motivate especially beginners to get houseplants and also show us that you do not need a green thumb to become a successful plant mom * dad.

Under this motto, the "carnivorous bedside lamp" was created - during the day, the lamp serves as a plant light for the carnivorous plant and in the evening, the plant then catches mosquitoes and flies, which are attracted by the light and thus fall into the trap even easier.
