Reported just last week this crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for a Glowing Bioluminescent Plant had surpassed $250,000 – now stands over $385,000. With 14 days to go the original target of $65,000 has been easily crushed.
In a release organizers The Glowing Plant team announced they will be bringing their knowledge of applied science and genetics to the masses, and has developed a Maker Kit that allows anyone to make their own glowing plant at home. They showed off the Maker Kit at Bay Area’s Maker Faire last weekend with other like-minded makers and DIYers. The Maker Kit can be found on Glowing Plant’s Kickstarter page, and includes a copy of the Glowing Plant book, a full set of instructions and all the ingredients needed to transform a plant at home.
“We’ve been so thankful that the Kickstarter community has been so supportive of our project and we’re constantly thinking of ways to show them our appreciation,” says Antony Evans, Co-Founder of the Glowing Plant Kickstarter project. “Because we reached our goal so quickly, everyone who supported our campaign at the $40 reward level and up will receive seeds to grow their very own glowing plants. Additionally, we’ve set a stretch goal at $400,000 and when it’s reached, my team and I will create glowing rose plants to all backers who have pledged at the $150 reward level and up.”
Stretch goals have been incorporated to sustain momentum. The first was at the $65,000 mark but the next is at $400,000. If this level is achieved supporters who donated $150 will receive glowing rose plants.
