Personal growth is hard.

Sometimes we need a little help.

It's hard to be productive when we're depressed; doubly so when it feels like the very seasons are against us. And sometimes, once we start digging, we find that the roots of our discomfort run surprisingly deep.

Professional artist Cano knows this all too well, falling prey to winter doldrums year after year; it's become practically routine at this point. When the weather turns cold, they shut themselves in and ride out the sadder months of the year. But what if they didn't have to accept this? What if they stood up for themselves, and took action?

What if, in a fit of self-actualization, they made an impulsive online purchase and got more than they bargained for?

More than a year in the making, Plant Lamp is an illustrated light novel about surviving, thriving, and the messy path between the two. I hope you like it! Let’s keep making wonderful things together.

Featuring the art of Ayla Arthur!

This is a light novel of 160 pages with 10 color illustrations.

Awwww this was a really lovely read ^_^

Really impacted my life, even if I am CIS and straight, I've realized its cool and healthy to have a feminine side. I identified with a lot of the themes of not living life as yourself due to some mental health stuff, and this helped. Thanks,


As a person who discovered, a few years back, that questioning your gender is something that can happen it really is nice reading about someone having similar thoughts. I was never taught about the lgbt+ community until i searched what the word "transgender" meant. 

Living in the shadows and hiding yourself from the world can be a toll in the mind and body, and being an introvert i can relate with not really wanting to see other people outside and not wanting to leave your apartment ever.

It's also nice seeing trans characters getting happy endings, as you wish you had. Support can really help a person feel loved and accept themself a lot faster.
