Light-N-Grow Plant Stand
The "Light-N-Grow" lights up, sprays water, and shows off your flowers all at the same time. The 5-ft. high unit consists of a hollow pvc tube supported by four legs at the bottom. A hose runs up through the tube and through a circular pipe to a nozzle mounted on top of the pipe. You hook your garden hose or lawn sprinkler system up to a connection at the base of the unit. Water is sent outward in a 10-ft. dia. pattern. Four low-voltage lights mount on "legs" at the bottom and another low-voltage light mounts inside the circular pipe. The main tube supports shelves for three flower pots, with the larget pot at the bottom and the smallest at the top.
"It makes a beautiful pyramid-shaped display, especially at dusk when the lights create a halo effect over the cascading water," says inventor Bill Bohland. "You can use a low-voltage timer to automatically turn the lights on or off. Most of the water sprays out far enough that your flowers won't get overwatered. I set my unit up at home so that it automatically comes on when our sprinkler starts up. A step-down transformer is supplied, allowing you to plug it into any 110 volt outlet."
The tube comes in two pieces that clamp together. Sells for $89.95 including 50 ft. of cable, three flower pots, and the lights.
