Don’t think you have room for grow lights and a humidifier for your plants?

Think again…

Winner of the Mailorder Gardening Association’s 2000 Green Thumb award, this compact Intelligent Plant Light is the answer to all of your indoor gardening needs! Plug the light in, and the 9 watt full spectrum fluorescent lamp turns on and off automatically, with daylength in cycle with the seasons. The telescoping stem adjusts to fit plants 7″ to 14″tall. And unlike most fluorescent shop lights, this plant light has a built in moisture sensor that reminds you when it’s time to water. Just insert the water sensor in the soil, and a flashing light lets you know when the soil is dry. The pebbled base holds a 5 1/2″ pot, and serves as a combination catch basin/humidity tray to create the right moisture balance for your plant.

• Grow very small plants or larger plants up to 12” tall
• Allows you to position the lamp closer or farther away from the plant to control the light intensity

– At 2” away from the plant, it is receiving the equivalent of bright light

• When it’s time to replace the bulb, use the Timely Lighting Care 9-Watt Replacement Lamp


Plant Light Soil Moisture SensorSoil moisture sensor

• There is a soil moisture sensor included with the TLC plant light
• When it is inserted in the soil, it will indicate when it is time to water the plant
• Light will flash next to the words “water me” on the controller
• The depth of the sensor rods can determine how often you should water your plant

– When fully pressed into the soil, the sensor will indicate when the soil is completely dry
– When inserted only half way, the sensor is measuring only the top inch of soil
– If your plant requires more consistent moisture, insert the sensor half way into the soil

Plant light baseWater-retaining base

• The base of the TLC plant light catches the excess water that drains through the plant after watering
• Creates a humid microclimate that is beneficial to the plant as the water evaporates
• Pebbled base is designed to keep the plant above the water so that the roots will not rot
• Will accommodate a pot up to 5½” in diameter.
