Gallery: Sprout Living Lamp Doubles as a Lush Terrarium


Created for homeowners who struggle with incorporating plants into their home decor, Emily Paul’s Sprout Living Lamp offers a striking yet space-efficient lighting fixture that combines the best of both worlds. The lamp base and shade are made with found materials, and its insides are brimming with the life of a lush plant. If you feel drawn to this lamp’s green glow, then vote for this fantastic Bright Ideas finalist here!


Succulents were the plant of choice when creating the lamp because of their modest watering needs and their ability to survive in the face of even the most negligent first-time gardeners. Because the lamp shade is also covered in plants, it emits a muted, warm glow. But if greater illumination is required, the shade can be removed and placed next to the lamp base to allow a super-efficient LED bulb to give off a brighter, uninhibited light.

If cared for properly, the Sprout Living Lamp will continue to evolve for years to come, and might just replace the chia-pet that’s been sitting on your coffee table.

    Can anyone tell me if the lamp from a lizard’s terrarium is okay for raising small streptocarpus it has certainly made the see germinate. Should I keep it on or turn it off at night?
