This is "Sparky", the perfect landscaping flower for the modern city. "Sparky" was developed with the city of Singapore and is practically indestructible. It can cope with full sun and full shade, can take high humidity as well as weeks of extreme drought.
But what makes "Sparky" really exciting are two unique features:
1. "Sparky" flowers will glow in the dark!
By implementing a naturally fluorescent pigment into the flower pedals, "Sparky" will absorb sunlight throughout the day and return it at night time in a warm and bright glow. As a result, cities that plant "Sparky" along their streets, will no longer need electric street lighting.
2. "Sparky" is the ultimate air purifier.
Every day each plant absorbs around 150 kg of CO2 and converts it into over 100 kg of Oxygen. This is ten times more effective than any tree in the tropical rain forest, providing our crowded cities with a fresh ocean-like breeze.

"MacGyver" is a crossing between 13 different species and is the Swiss Army Knife amongst the bedding plants: Nothing of this plant is without a benefit.
- The pollen of the plant is addictive to hummingbirds and butterflies, making "MacGyver" a perfect pollinator magnet.
- The flowers react to the atmosphere pressure. If the pressure goes up, they will turn red, if it goes down, they will turn yellow. Thus, telling you what tomorrow’s weather is going to be like.
- The leaves have been bred to be sensitive to stress hormones. Touch them and the plant will let you know by its leaf color, if you need a relaxing massage (bright green) or a kicking coffee (black). Pick the flowers and "MacGyver" will release its stevia heritage: A sweetener 100 times sweeter than conventional sugar.
- The tomato shaped fruits can be modulated in taste: Give some sugar in its water and it will taste sweet as a melon. Give some salt in it, and it will taste like spicy pepper. And more: Choose from more than 25 different additives for your watering water, flavoring "MacGyver’s" fruits from smokey barbeque to super sour.
- The roots of the plant produce low voltage electric energy. Through a plug in the pot you can charge your smart phone and other home devices.
- Towards the end of the life cycle, the roots of "MacGyver" will form into tubers of starch that are just as versatile as a potato.
But what makes "MacGyver" really unique, is that the plant will talk to you. By releasing specific substances into the substrate, which your watering sensor will read and transmit to your smart phone, the plant will tell you exactly what it needs: more water, more light, more food.
