An alternate way to illuminate a room without using electricity.

Glowing Plants is a Kickstarter project which sells night lights – the only catch is that they’re delivered in seed form and you have to grow them yourself.

By pledging $40 dollars to the projects you will receive 50-100 seeds that you can grow into your very own organic night lights. There is also the option of pledging $150 to receive a fully-formed plant, making the task of gardening an irrelevant one.

The project itself wasn’t an easy one to accomplish – the team had to put together sequences of DNA using a Genome Compiler software. This is the part of the process the team are using Kickstarter to attract funds for – after which they can insert the DNA into a small flowering plant to give it that fluorescent quality.
