  • Patent number: 8845149
    Abstract: A plant illumination apparatus including a driving unit having a central axis, a first slide base, a second slide base, a light source, and a retractable arm having a retraction-control terminal and light-disposing terminal is provided. The first and second slide bases are disposed on the driving unit. The drive unit simultaneously drives the first and second slide bases to move along the central axis in opposite directions. The retraction-control terminal has a first end and a second end respectively connected to the first and second slide bases and moving therewith. When the first and second ends approach each other, the retractable arm extends so the light-disposing terminal moves away from the retraction-control terminal. When the first and second ends leave each other, the retractable arm retracts so the light-disposing terminal moves toward the retraction-control terminal. The light source is disposed on the light-disposing terminal to illuminate a plant.
