Families huddle together on a beach as menacing black clouds gather overhead. Holding plastic cups of Earl Grey with both hands for warmth, they stoically munch on the last of their sand-filled egg rolls. These hardy souls are as shrivelled and blue as the contents of the one swimmer on the beach’s Speedos. It is of course a classic scene of the Great British Summer.
After another endlessly disappointing season of shattered barbecue plans and crying kids in sodden tents, a lot of us may be pining for a bit of tropic heat. Unfortunately, short of upping sticks and emigrating, there’s nothing that can be done about the weather in our green and sometimes deeply unpleasant land. But there IS something to be done about the conditions in your growroom! With Bio Green’s Tropic Heater you can play weather god and maintain total temperature control over your plants. And if you’re growing under LED lights (this being our LED-themed issue after all) your plants could be as heat-starved as a long-suffering denizen of this sceptred isle.
