There was a cute trick at the last meeting of our local society. One guy put tin foil around the base of the tree, reflecting sun up to the lower branches of the tree. It caused increased growth of leaves on the lower part of the tree. It also reflects heat away from the pot, which can't hurt the tree.

I don't remember what you do about watering.

Interesting, there's a large scale Bonsai producer that uses tin foil around the sphagnum moss on airlayering, I don't think it's the best, but it works, and it's fast, since it's a large scale field and do that by the thousands, it fits it's needs.
