“During the winter months, it is important for us to add extra light supplementation. High Altitude Plants such as Alpine Perennials and Dyonysia is very difficult to cultivate. Heat is one of the big issues, we therefore had quality issues with our plants under our old HPS lamps. The benefits we received with the LX60 breaks all records in terms of both survival and quality… further 100 percent of our Dionysia-cuttings survived and that’s exceptional!”

- Marika Irvine, gardener at Gothenburg Botanical Garden

Gothenburg Botanical Garden, with its 175 hectares in central Gothenburg, is one of the largest botanical gardens in Europe. The cultivated part occupies about 40 hectares and there are about 16 000 species of plants. A large number of these are part of the scientific collections, including one of Europe’s largest collections of Bulbs and Tubers, Alpine and the Dionysia. Since 2013 the Botanical Garden has used Heliospectra Grow light systems, they currently use our newLX60 and has received great results.
