    I suppose, it is just a simple pendant lamp, you can see this on the third photo, Keith...
    Perhaps used with a dimmer plug?

    I did see that light and it fitted perfectly, it would have to be perfectly sealed from any moisture.

    I saw similar glass containers with a few plants in them (best way to describe them) up to $300 a few days ago at a nursery.

    Hi Keith
    so you can see, how much our work is worth ;)
    unfortunately nobody wants to pay $ 300 to me for it, yet... (n)

    There is another big garden supplier in a very up market area exactly the same would be $400 easily.

    Boah, a bit expensive... Keith? :eek:

    what about IKEA?
    http://www.ikea.com/au/en/catalog/products/80325934/#/10266985

    Maybe it is also nice, to use a LED floor reading lamp...

    It looks, like he used down lights on the vases ? They would have the advantage of being closed and so to be more water proof.

    But on a shadowy window you will not need a lamp at all - just turn the glass all a few days to the light.
    I never use lamps - but I would urgently need many more north windows ;)

    On the west windows, where I have a twin wall sheet roof outside -
    it is no problem with the sun heat there in the vases (also with little aquariums on the window sill -
    perhaps it also would help just to put such a sheet between window and the glass container to protect from too much heat? (n)

    Evelyn I saw a very similar light at the garden hardware shop this morning.

    I will possibly set it up in the bathroom the only other position I have is in the kitchen but the power outlets are used a lot where as in the bathroom not used at all.

    Hi Keith,

    suddenly "War of the Worlds" came into my mind.... ;)

    Well seriously, the lamp looks very good and is flexible over the whole length. (y)
