"Light Art controlled by living plants"

Drawing inspiration from Cleve Backster's polygraph tests with plants in The Secret Life of Plants, the Floranium is similar to an ECG (Electrocardiogram), responding to electro-chemical fluctuations in plants.

"FLORANIUM lamps are innovative life indicators that allow you to visualize activities of living plants, caused by movement, touch, changes in climate, environment and many other elements of life."

"A ground probe is inserted into the plant's soil and an electrode is connected directly to the plant's leaf using a special adhesive paste."

"The chemical reaction which takes place at this junction causes an electron flow to occur. The electron flow is measured with a very sensitive bio-signal amplifier. The amplifier is connected to a micro-controller which processes the plant's bio-signal and converts it into a colorful LED display for viewing."

Inventor Martin Heine interviewed on the Beyond 50 Radio Show.
