New Year Amaryllis – Happy And Alive!

Friday, January 1st, 2010

First of all we wish all our customers, homepage visitors and business partners a healthy and successful Happy New Year!

To celebrate this, we’d like to share a story with you from a client in the Netherlands: He is a specialist for rare plants and grows (among others) a special type of amaryllis from South Africa. Now after he was away for some travels and without proper lighting as usual, on his return the plant seemed to have died off and the leafs already showed an unhealthy yellow colour.

Even though he thought it was too late, he felt to give Viva-Lite a go and installed 2×80W Viva-Lite Full Spectrum tubes just to find that after only 3 days of being lit with Viva-Lite, his amaryllis came back to perfect condition adding “this result is absolutely amazing”:

Since then we had many enquiries and lot of feedback from people who use Viva-Lite for their plants and animals alike (e.g. fish, aquarium etc.), many with similar stories.

We thought of sharing this good news with you at the beginning of the New Year.

About the Housing Fair:

The ca. 40 fair houses built on the verdant housing fair area in Valkeakoski form a multi-faceted combination. An extensible, unique house for a first home, a TV-house and a passive house with a vivid design are good examples of the extensive selection of houses. The fair includes houses built in both traditional and modern styles, one- and two-storey solutions, stone and wood houses – not to mention the latest trends and experimental building.

What Light Looks Like

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

Have you ever wondered what light looks like? Sure, everybody remembers the prisms in school and the colors of the rainbow. But how good an energy saving lamp – often with its dull colors – really is you can check for yourself now.

Dave – one of our kind customers in Australia has sent us the following pictures of an energy saving lamp with the Viva-Lite Spectrum and the Sunlight as a comparison:

Both photos were taken through so-called “Spectral-Glasses” which you can get in many stores and on the internet. Or buy them directly in the Viva-Lite International Online-Store and compare for yourself…
