Effect of Artificial Light on Plant Growth
Plants use light to make food through a process called photosynthesis. During photosynthesis, plants use the green chlorophyll, a pigment, to help convert carbon dioxide, water, and light into carbohydrates and oxygen. When they do this, they create the materials that they need to grow. This is just one reason that plants are amazing: they never need to go to the grocery store!
What types of artificial light are best for plants? What angle of light do plants prefer?
