The best lighting source would be indirect sun...

You should read the bonsai articles on the website...

Thanks, I got the tree 2 days ago and have already printed off almost all of the helpful advice.

Would a sun lamp work if it was in the same area but no pointed straight towards it and how could i increase the humidity in the are?

Regular misting, a humidity tray, or a humidifier would all work...

As for the light, I tried it once over a winter (mostly tropicals) to mixed reviews. Sun lamps are NOT grow lights, and a grow light needs to be only a foot or so away for any benefit. NOTHING beats real sunlight, so see what you can do to get it some...
