Indoor Light Setup

Derek Bentley, an enthusiastic indoor bonsai grower, sends photos of his indoor bonsai growing setup. A metal halide light provides excellent growing conditions for his indoor bonsai. A specially created wooden box holds the transformer and electronics for the metal halide lights. The box is constructed to both muffle the transformer noise as well as to ventilate away the heat from the transformer.
