Small scale 14W single plant light designed for the National Science Foundation

The design of the FloraLamp was commissioned by Dr. Kevin Folta of the University of Florida to a needs specification of the National Science Foundation, which we were uniquely prepared to produce within budget exactly to the stated requirements.

These lamps are suited for single small houseplant nourishment and sustenance. They are capable of restoring health to a stressed or light starved plant, sprouting seed, rooting small cuttings, or providing fresh spice herbs for a kitchen.

Designed to the rigors of a research environment, the FloraLamp provides the ability to manually tailor the light output to the requirements of the plant, with the laboratory version allowing real time computer control of this function.

The FloraLamp is currently in preparations to undergo UL certification for consumer use.

It is through our professional liaison with these cutting edge academic scientists that LEC is able to provide the basic programs for the MarkV, utilizing the nascent understandings only now being discovered by the targeted research of these academic heavyweights. Our patent protected design utilizes this existing manufacturing infrastructure to produce an LED for purposes far removed from the original design of the classic RGB LED.



Our patent protected design utilizes existing RGB manufacturing infrastructure to produce an LED for a purpose far removed from the original design of the classic RGB LED. This becomes possible as the very latest ultra high power RGB LED packages are designed to carry up to three emitters for each of the three primary human visual colors.

In a standard operating environment using either the Vegetative mode or the Fruiting mode, the full sized light will emit over 500 PAR watts during a normal daylight cycle. Currently, the design has a physical dimension of 14"x9", at one end a rectangular emitter area of 8"x8" emitting light onto a square table area of 4'x4'. The design allows for a possible peak power of 610 PAR watts, at which time the light would be in an over-rated state.
