Lightwave 4-Tube Fluorescent Grow Light.
Supplemental lighting is something that is used across the whole spectrum of horticulture. However in relation to bonsai cultivation it's use is rare. Anyone living in the U.K or similar northern climes will be only too familiar with the dull gloomy days of winter. Many people suffer from S.A.D at this time of year and it's safe to say that many of our trees feel the same. Evergreens, particularly those from warmer climates suffer badly over winter due to the lack of light and I am sure most of us have Japanese junipers that look dull and grey. Using supplemental lighting will keep evergreens sparkling all winter. Lighting is also vital for keeping tropical indoor plants healthy over winter when light intensity is low.
Horticultural lighting can be used for a great many purposes including....

The LightWave unit is a revelation for plant production and maintenance. A beautiful quality unit that you just remove from the box and plug in. Fully assembled and ready to go, no messing! Lightwave units simply ooze quality once you get them out of the box.
The Lightwave grow lamp technology is rapidly gaining a reputation for outstanding performance in terms of light output versus power consumed. Ideal for large or small scale propagation thanks to the exceptionally even spread of light that they create. Each individual tube is surrounded by a separate groove in the reflector, carefully shaped to optimize light crossover without wasting any output. Lightwaves are much more efficient that normal growlight bulbs because they produce an even column of intense light with virtually no heat, thus allowing the unit to be positioned close to your plants without risk of scorching. Each unit includes steel cables for hanging above your plants. Alternatively just stand the unit against the wall and light from the side.
