Effects of spectral components on plant growth

     We all know that light is very important to any plant on the earth. After all, the photosynthesis and respiration of plants are the same as human respiration and receiving sunlight.  Solar radiation affects plant growth and development based on spectrum, light intensity and sunshine time. Solar radiation is the most direct and important meteorological element affecting plant growth and development.

   Different wavelengths of light have different effects on plant growth. Blue, purple and blue light in visible light play a great role in plant growth and bud formation. This kind of light can inhibit the elongation of the post, but form a thick and short shape; At the same time, blue and purple light is also the most important light controlling cell differentiation; Blue violet light can also affect the phototropism of plants. Ultraviolet light can inhibit the formation of some growth hormones in plants, thus inhibiting the elongation of stems; Ultraviolet can also cause phototropism sensitivity and promote the formation of anthocyanins like blue, purple and cyan in visible light. The red light in visible light and the infrared light in non visible light can promote the germination of seeds or spores and the elongation of stems. Red light can also promote the decomposition of carbon dioxide and the formation of chlorophyll.

     In addition, different wavelengths of light also affect the photosynthetic products of plants. For example, red light is conducive to the synthesis of carbohydrates, and blue light is conducive to the synthesis of proteins and organic acids. Therefore, in agricultural production, controlling the products of photosynthesis by affecting light quality can improve the quality of crops. Half of the plants in high mountains or plateau areas have the characteristics of short stems, reduced leaf area, developed Tricholoma, increased chlorophyll, anthocyanins in stems and leaves, and color of flowers. This is because of the low temperature in high mountains and more ultraviolet rays.

      Therefore, the influence of spectrum on plants is very huge. When you want your plants to grow healthily, you should also pay great attention to the selection of light in the case of insufficient sunlight. After all, different spectra have different effects on different stages of plant development. Therefore, you should select the most appropriate spectral conditions for your plants on the premise of understanding a certain spectrum, The selection of plant lights has become a very necessary part. When you don't understand, you can ask the customer service of the store to answer the matching light source most suitable for your plants.
