Using a one-dimensional system, we demonstrate a wide variety of wave propagation phenomena possible in nonlinear left-handed media. These include effective second-harmonic generation where the fundamental wave and the second-harmonic wave are badly mismatched. We also observe parametric instabilities accompanying intensive harmonic generation.
